About this event

COMA is a live immersive experience......come, if you dare!

Imagine the moment of waking up is actually the moment when your dream begins. In light of this new and strange reality, how can we save you from the unspeakable horrors which lurk in the dark recesses of your mind? The only cure we offer is a placebo and a promise. Please remember when you leave to take your body with you.

DARKFIELD’s brand new show, COMA, premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and in Canary Wharf, London. Over 30 minutes, the audience is invited to take part in a mass experiment, to lie down together and imagine a new collective reality.


REVIEWS

‘If you’ve never experienced one of Darkfield’s shows, absolutely go: it is technically astonishing, completely uncanny, and deeply unnerving. You start to question your own senses. You may start to feel a rising panic. It’s not for the faint-hearted.’ - The Independent

"Impressionistic, almost surreal" - ★★★★ The Scotsman

…not for the faint-hearted, Coma…creates intense feelings and is truly unnerving. It takes audiences on a disturbing journey into a world where nothing (and everything) is possible.’ - ★★★★★ In Daily Australia


ABOUT DARKFIELD's COMA

DARKFIELD produces innovative immersive experiences at the forefront of technology and theatre - both location based experiences and digital work. DARKFIELD’s location based work utilises striking sets and shipping containers, binaural 360 degree sound, complete darkness and a variety of sensory effects, where each participant is situated at the centre of intense, evolving narratives. A special shipping container will be installed right outside of Watermans....you will meet at Studio 1 in Watermans main entrance at your allocated time where you will be debriefed and will leave your bags and phones, the room will be secure. You will then be led to the experience, taking place in the shipping container.

Come and experience it if you dare!


PLEASE NOTE: We can accommodate one wheelchair user per session. Please call Box Office on 020 8232 1010 to reserve a wheelchair access to this event.


New project DARKFIELD RADIO brings DARKFIELD’s work and binaural audio into the audience's environment via a phone app - their home, their car, their local park become the setting for strange worlds to unfold around them, stealing them away from reality. 

The shows have launched to critical acclaim, featuring in major film festivals such as Venice International Film Festival, IDFA, London Film Festival, Raindance Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, SXSW and winning Columbia’s Digital Storytelling Lab’s Breakthrough Award in recognition of the year’s most innovative narrative. 

Alongside partners around the world, DARKFIELD is touring the work in the UK, Australia & New Zealand, China, US & Canada, South Korea and Mexico and have so far reached over 250,000 audience members worldwide, and counting.
