"Who would have thought that across from Madame Tussaud's lay the 14,000 sq ft of an underground hangar, once used to test concrete for Spaghetti Junction and the Channel Tunnel? The venue is extraordinary." (The Times 16.04.08)
Within this "extraordinary venue", for one day and one night only, will emerge, as if from nowhere, an atmospheric, interactive audio-visual guerrilla installation and curated event. The unique and pioneering installation lets the audience control the narrative through a series of pressure sensors hidden in different locations around the set.
Past Replay Past offers audiences the chance to build on the trend towards immersive experiences for audiences, pioneered by Shunt and Punchdrunk, and developed by the controversial winners of this years? Fringe First Award at Edinburgh, Ontroerend Goed, and Kursk (also at Edinburgh).
In addition to the audience-controlled interactive installation, a number of the UKs most exciting emerging artists will also be exhibiting their work on the night. Among them are:
