About this event

Immersive experience played out in real-time where you remain in the same character for a set period of time. Moving between different zoom rooms, we’ll build a world and the tapestry of relationships and stories within it.

What to expect:

  • Starting as ourselves, we’ll play games, get comfortable together and decide on the rules of our playground.
  • Then we dive into character (costumes optional!), explore and play. Staying in character throughout, you’ll interact with others and create a snapshot of life in this fictional place.
  • After our adventure we’ll regroup, let go of our creations, share and wind down together.

NB: Staying in character for longer periods can be a very rich experience, and it can also be quite challenging. Please consider whether this is appropriate for you before booking. There will be a ‘backstage room’ if you need to take a breather.

Min. participants 6, max. 8. If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24hours notice (and you will receive a warning 48 hours before the course if this looks likely).
