Australia’s favourite supernatural, spine-tingling theatrical experience, DARKFIELD SÉANCE, is making its debut on the Gold Coast this Halloween, kicking off on 28 October with tickets now on sale.
SÉANCE, the first installation of the highly acclaimed multi-sensory series, DARKFIELD, invites Queenslanders to be engulfed in complete darkness and have their grasp on reality challenged when it opens on the Gold Coast.
Opening at HOTA, Home of the Arts on Halloween weekend, SÉANCE, presented by Realscape Productions (AU) in association with DARKFIELD (UK), uses binaural sound to put audience members in the centre of the supernatural experience.
SÉANCE takes place inside a 40ft shipping container in pitch darkness with each audience member wearing a set of noise cancelling headphones. Deprived of their vision, the intense 360 degree audio creates a soundscape that will have them questioning their own sense of reality.
The experience explores the psychology of a group of people bombarded with suggestible material. It asks the audience to believe, not only in what seems to be happening in the room, but also in what might be conjured up.
“SÉANCE has been a crowd favourite everywhere we go. For some people it can be scary or a thrill, but for others it has this amazing sound design that really toys with your brain,” said Nathan Alexander, producer at Realscape Productions.
