About the Play
Imagine sitting in a theatre without seeing anything. It’s pitch black, and someone strokes your arm. A “cause celebre” in a number of European theatres, the Odyssey brings a unique experiment to its own stages. Theatre, all in the dark! Anticipate the ever present potential of the unexpected. What can happen during an evening theatre experience in complete darkness with audience intimately confronted by actors, constantly changing spatial and sound perspectives, utilizing voice, music and sound? A wonderful “tickle” of the audience’s capacity for imagination and fantasy in a two-evening festival.
Darkness! Audience in the dark! Actors in the dark! No light! DARK and MORE DARK, a two-evening audacious festival, THEATRE IN THE DARK opens mid-October 2012.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: THE PLAY RUNS 90 MINUTES IN COMPLETE DARKNESS.
