Unique And Exhilarating Edinburgh Sell-out Experience Comes To Nottingham
Following three sold out Edinburgh Festival runs and several international and UK tours to over 110,000 people – Lakeside Arts brings Darkfield’s Flight to Nottingham this February.
This immersive, thrilling experience invites audiences to step inside a 40ft shipping container – with an interior exactly resembling an Airbus 320 economy cabin – and take a 30-minute short-haul flight in absolute darkness.
Innovative theatre company Darkfield have an international reputation for creating work at the forefront of technology and theatre. Their immersive shows in shipping containers use 360-degree sound through headphones, complete darkness and a variety of sensory effects to situate each audience member at the centre of intense narratives. Behind the doors of the container a strange world unfolds. Step inside, put on the headphones and soon the lights will go out.
Flight, nominated for VAULT Festival’s 2019 Innovation Award, plays with sounds and sensory effects to give you a ‘sharp experience guaranteed to disrupt your reality’ (The Age), ‘one you may well walk out of shaken but will ultimately feel enriched by the experience.’ (Cinema Fringes). It is an experience like no other and is not to be missed!
Part of the Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity – a week-long festival which takes Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths out of the lab and into our everyday lives – Flight explores the many worlds interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, taking audience members through two worlds, two realities and two possible outcomes to their journey. There are many worlds in which this plane lands safely…
Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to direct your attention to the on-board safety demonstration and ask that you give us your full attention. In the unlikely event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure alternative scenarios will be provided. Neither Heaven nor Hell is assured. We’re not responsible for your final destination.
Flight takes place between Saturday 15 – Sunday 23 February, in a shipping container adjacent to Lakeside Arts’ DH Lawrence Pavilion. Tickets are £8 and £5 for students.
