Darkfield’s Spine-Tingling Séance Arrives This Summer in Mandurah From December 8

SÉANCE season on Mandurah’s Eastern Foreshore runs Friday 8 Dec 2021 to Sunday 9 Jan 2022

Audiences are invited to attend a multi-sensory supernatural experience inside a 40ft sea-container featuring Darkfield’s signature 360-degree sound

DARKFIELD returns to the Mandurah Foreshore this Summer, with their acclaimed multi-sensory sea-container experience, SÉANCE.  Audiences will be engulfed in complete darkness and have their grasp on reality challenged when SÉANCE opens on Friday 8 December.
 
SÉANCE, presented by Realscape Productions (AU) in association with DARKFIELD (UK), uses binaural sound to put audience members in the centre of the supernatural experience.
 
SÉANCE takes place inside a 40ft shipping container in pitch darkness with each audience member wearing a set of noise cancelling headphones. Deprived of their vision, the intense 360-degree audio creates a soundscape that will have them questioning their own sense of reality.
 
The experience explores the psychology of a group of people bombarded with suggestible material. It asks the audience to believe, not only in what seems to be happening in the room, but also in what might be conjured up.
 
“SÉANCE has been a crowd favourite everywhere we go. For some people it can be intense or a thrill, but for others it has this amazing sound design that really toys with your brain,” said Nathan Alexander, producer at Realscape Productions.
 
“The show is a twist on a traditional séance – don’t expect a rollercoaster, but something a little stranger and more sinister,” he continued.
 
This is the second DARKFIELD shipping container experience in Mandurah after the premiere of FLIGHT last year.  The experience forms part of the City of Mandurah’s Summer In Mandurah events program that includes an exciting Christmas Lights Trail through the City Centre, the beloved Mandruah Christmas Pageant and the iconic Christmas Lights Canal Cruises.
 
SÉANCE has played previously at Fringe World, and toured to Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and most recently the Gold Coast before landing in Mandurah.

“The December programming in Mandurah fits perfectly with SÉANCE.  As the audience emerges from the darkness, they will come out to the vibrant Christmas Lights trail and a range of bars and restaurants – offering a full range of multi-sensory entertainment for their night out,” commented Amy Johnson, producer at Realscape Productions.
 
Those looking for a taste of what to expect before December, can tune in to Darkfield Radio, a series of audio encounters designed to be experienced at home. Darkfield’s creators David Rosenberg and Glen Neath are the masterminds behind the immersive experiences, and have recently sparked global attention of XR and VR communities with their ability to create worlds for the audience using only audio.
 
SÉANCE runs for 20 minutes, and will run frequently at various times at the Southern end of the Eastern Foreshore, Mandurah Terrace, from Friday 8 Dec 2021 to Sunday 9 Jan 2022. Ticket prices are $20, available from www.darkfield.com.au.  For info visit: www.darkfield.com.au/seance

Note: SÉANCE is not suitable for those under 13. Check content warnings before purchase of tickets.
