Door Into the Dark

Door into the Dark is an immersive documentary experience about what it means to be lost in an age of infinite information.

Unique in form and groundbreaking in its use of locative technology, Door Into the Dark brings together captivating documentary stories and visceral physical experience. Blindfolded, shoeless and alone, you feel your way into the dark along a taut length of rope that leads into a vivid aural world of real people who have been profoundly lost, and irreversibly changed. Your encounter with these characters takes you deep into their world of sensation, risk and illusion. To find your way back out into the light, you must surrender to the unknown. With a binaural soundscape to heighten the sense of total immersion, recordings triggered by iBeacons carve out the participants’ pathway through the piece.

As you navigate the set – encountering forests, grass, a suspended bridge, walls that envelop and carry you, and much more besides – you listen to these individuals narrate their experiences. Each physical moment finds its match in the story; you embody what you hear.
