Darkfield create innovative work at the forefront of technology and theatre. Their three sell-out Edinburgh runs have been experienced by over 100,000 people. Flight takes place in a 40 foot shipping container in absolute darkness, using binaural 360 degree sound and sensory effects to put each audience member at the centre of intense evolving narratives.
Flight explores the Many-Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics, taking audience members through two worlds, two realities and two possible outcomes to their journey. There are many worlds in which this plane lands safely. We are not responsible for your final destination.
An experience that’s properly exhilarating… a reminder of one’s closeness at all times to death that spits you out into the sunlight feeling palpably, certainly, alive.” Exeunt Magazine
Please note: The majority of Flight takes place in pitch darkness - there are fading lights and one distinct flicker of light. There is no strobe lighting.
Please note: if you do choose to leave the performance, you will not be readmitted.
