Multi-sensory series DARKFIELD returns to Melbourne in May

words by Sidonie Bird from the heart

Set in a darkened shipping container that plunges the audience into complete darkness, DARKFIELD is a series of sensory experiences like no other.

DARKFIELD has returned to Melbourne to take audiences out of their comfort zone with four immersive and exciting shows. Performed in complete darkness, FLIGHT, SÉANCE, COMA and EULOGY use binaural audio, sensory deprivation and special effects to plunge their audience into a thrilling and at times terrifying story.

With four shows in different containers, DARKFIELD offers audiences many different types of experiences, in addition to the Melbourne premiere of two never-before-seen shows, EULOGY and COMA.

Your eyes will play tricks on you in COMA, as you separate from the people you associate with to lie in a bed and end up in a collective dream state. Thrill-seekers’ delight, FLIGHT is an unsettling journey that uses binaural audio to simulate a plane crash with multiple end scenarios – whether your plane will land safely or not is unknown. Not for the faint of heart, SÉANCE sees audiences question their own senses as they place their trust in the hands of a spiritual medium to connect with the spiritual world. EULOGY uses speech recognition technology and immerses the audience in a dreamy, labyrinthine hotel.

“We are so excited to announce DARKFIELD’s highly anticipated return to Melbourne, where it all started for us,” said Amy Johnson, producer at Realscape Productions. “We can’t wait to see the reactions of the Melbourne crowd as they experience COMA and EULOGY for the first time, and it only made sense that we brought back SÉANCE and FLIGHT for those who missed our previous sold-out seasons. †

DARKFIELD takes place at 138 Little Bourke St. for shows starting May 26. For more information and to book your tickets, go here.
