Welcome to DARKFIELD. We hope you enjoy your stay.
At check-in we will issue you a key card and allocate you a chaperone to guide you to the other side of the dream. Follow the right path and don’t volunteer to become the subject of the eulogy every guest is preparing to deliver.
EULOGY is a surreal, otherworldly journey through a dreamlike, labyrinthine hotel that exists entirely in your mind. How you arrived is a mystery and why you’re there remains unclear. Just make sure you read the pamphlet.
Performed in complete darkness over 35 minutes, this intense and exhilarating ride uses binaural sound and speech recognition technology to deceive the senses and transport audience members through rooms, down corridors and into the bowels of this strange and not altogether comfortable hotel. How your dream unfolds is, in part, up to you.
DARKFIELD produces innovative immersive experiences at the forefront of technology and theatre. It’s location-based work utilises striking sets inside shipping containers, binaural 360-degree sound, complete darkness, and a variety of sensory effects, where each participant is situated at the centre of an intense, evolving narrative.
Ticket Prices: £12.50 (£11.50 U21)
Age Recommendation: 14 +
Venue: The Forum, outdoor amphitheatre (Millennium Plain NR2 1BH)
Work takes place in complete darkness with no visuals. May not be suitable for those with claustrophobia, or those who could be triggered by sudden loud sounds or themes of fire and death. An opportunity to leave is provided before show fully begins. As the show is primarily audio-based and relies on hearing different audio in each ear, patrons with hearing impairments may not experience the full nature of the show.
Please note: We are able to accommodate for 1 wheelchair access seat per performance – please contact box office for more information

The Skinny on EULOGY ★★★★
“Darkfield presents it’s most disorienting and dream-like encounter yet… the experience of having immaterial, occasionally unsettling dreams is universal, and something that Eulogy explores sensationally.”
Collage Adelaide on EULOGY ★★★★
“A trippy, sensory adventure… Voices whisper intimately in your ear, music tinkles, doors clang. Puffs of air and little jolts of the cubicle contribute to the sensation of motion.”
