Candle House Collective’s (Crossed Wires, moonlight serenade) returns with UNDER THE BED: a festival of six stand-alone remote encounters for a solo participant. In a uniquely intimate combination of immersive theatre and alternate reality, each live, fully interactive encounter can be experienced anywhere in the USA via your mobile phone.
The selection of encounters is as follows:
BLACK BOX ($25, 40-50mins)
“This is your captain speaking…”
A cockpit recording of New Horizon Airlines flight 1114, with nonstop service from Los Angeles to Dubai and back again.
GHOST LIGHT ($25, 50mins)
“‘I simply remember my favorite things…’”
Neighbors have been reporting strange sounds and smells coming from the darkened Papaki Theatre. You’ve been asked to investigate.
GOOD MORNING ($25, 40-50mins)
“It felt, in a way, like the center of the world.”
As you tune into Good Morning Jubilee – Jubilee, OH’s favorite radio program since 1994 – make sure to bundle up. It’s getting awfully cold over there.
NEXT TIME ($25, 40-45mins)
“Sorry for the inconvenience.”
A once-in-a-lifetime call from your caseworker. Please have all your numbers in order.
THE LUCKY ONES ($35, 2 part experience – limited space remaining)
“Don’t you want to be prepared?”
Blake is a telemarketer for the Kuso Healing Company. You’re next on her list.
REBOZO ($65, 2 days – only one spot remains)
“There are always two sides to a story. At least.”
They’re here to mend; you’re here to help. Thank you for volunteering to be a Connector for Rebozo Reconnections.
These remote encounters are accessible to anyone (18+) in the USA with a text-enabled phone. However, please note that some encounters contain intense/disturbing content and mature themes. Discretion is strongly advised.
