1 Venue | 1 Show | 3 Stories | Multiple Experiences
After their success from last year, they have decided to push their limits further and explore more to bring true immersive experience for the audience, where they take you through a sensory experience while touring you through the beautiful space that is handcrafted into a darkroom where every corner will tell you a story.
Check out what we thought about it on our blog.
They invite you to this thrilling journey of exploration of 3 classical stories being unfolded in the unique experiential way in front of you. Where the thrill of uncertainty and unknowing is implicated by the blindfolds. Upon arrival, while you are still kept blindfolded you are greeted with characters from story whispering in your ears. It is said a scent can bring back some memories and so we expose you with some scents distinctively from each story. You are also given the power to decide the faith of the characters from the story. Whereas at times they themselves invite you to their stories. They become your friends and share some jokes and stories with you. And finally, they mix so well with you that the line between the actor and the character is blurred and you are transferred to a virtual reality.
All this, to only create a unique experience for you where they strive to make it worth every penny for the audience.
