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

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!
