Darkfield presents


In partnership with CityCo, as part of Halloween in the City

  • Created by Glen Neath and David Rosenberg
  • 19 October 2018 - 31 October 2018
  • On Tour / External

Taking place inside a completely dark shipping container, Séance explores the psychology of a group of people who have been bombarded with suggestible material. 

‘Rosenberg and Neath’s best collaboration to date, … makes you question not just your senses but what you actually believe’ The Guardian ★★★★

Happy Halloween. Climb inside our shipping container if your dare. For twenty terrifying minutes, twenty people will experience an intense sonic performance that explores the group's psychology. In the disorienting darkness, you'll ponder your views on superstition in this inventive, unnerving exercise in surprise and suspense by the creators of the hit show RING and FICTION.
