Darkfield, the guys responsible for the terrifying shipping container experiences, SÉANCE and FLIGHT, are back at it; this time bringing a whole new creepy experience as part of this year’s Fringe World called COMA.
In case you've been living under a rock, Darkfield is all about multi-sensory experiences with zero light and 360 degree sound which will freak you right out. This doesn’t sound too scary until you realise that the whole experience is more like a psychological experiment to mess with us, because though the only senses being engaged are touch and sound, the audio is designed to make punters conjure up imagery and question what is real and what isn’t.
So what can you expect from COMA? Well as usual, it’ll be set in one of their 40ft shipping containers, but this time each wall will be lined with bunk beds—picture one of those Japanese capsule hotels. You’ll be asked to say goodbye to your loved ones and climb into a bed all on your lonesome (sorry, no hand holding) before the immersive multi-sensory experience pushes you into a collective dream state that sends you deep into the dark corners of your mind.
You can catch all the Darkfield experiences at various times Tuesday to Sunday in the Woodside Pleasure Garden from Friday 15 January to Sunday 14 February.
