Shanghai – The new immersive theatre concept envelops the audience in the show, placing them at centre stage with their own lines to learn and costumes to wear. Before the performance, participants access the theatre through an unassuming door on a side street. They are provided with only a time, location and number, and discover more as the narrative unfolds.
The film noir interior has been specifically designed around the performance, exploring the relationship between space, event and movement to create a sense of disorientation and melodrama. In a predominantly digital world, this form of immersive Futuretainment demonstrates the enduring importance of physical performances.
