This immersive protest/party puts audience members right in the middle of the 2014 Kiev Uprising. It's based on Mark and Marichka Marczyk's real experiences at a pivotal time for Ukraine, and is full of folk singing, documentary footage, and chances to get involved. Belarus Free Theatre has reworked its 2016 Edinburgh fringe hit as the headliner for the 2019 edition of Vault Festival, including three tiered levels of tickets, letting you choose whether you want to have dinner in the heart of the action, or watch from the gallery.
Bram Stoker lurked in the shadows of the London Library while he was researching 'Dracula', so it's fitting that his terrifying vampire story is being performed amongst its shelves this winter. Oxford-based Creation Theatre's version of the story uses only two actors and audio-visual tech to bring the tale to life.
Sort of midway between the more terrifying end of immerive theatre and one of London’s ubiquitous escape games, ‘Variant 31’ is billed as ‘Europe’s largest immersive survival experience’ and basically aims to throw you inside a horror movie. Staged in a 25,000 square foot space in a secret central London location, the 90-minute experience follows a story based around a powerful serum that goes seriously wrong, reanimating the dead, who naturally decide they would like hunt you down and kill you. With over 100 actors and the promise of fancy wearable technology – not to mention four dedicated bars – the show, from Transatlantic immersive horror specialists Big Dreamer Productions, sounds like a pretty fancy affair… but only if you're extremely brave.
