Escapism is a much-needed joy from time to time, and there is no better sanctuary than that offered by the art of immersive theatre.

Most performances are highly costly and the companies’ attention to detail is breath-taking in order to create a sense of verisimilitude. While all theatre comes in many forms, the possibilities here are endless. Immersive theatre doesn’t just break the fourth wall; it dismantles the entire room, creating an infinite fantastical space for its audience to play in.

Random sensory quotes

The charm of language is that, though it is human-made, it can on rare occasions capture emotions and sensations that aren’t. But the physiological links between the smell and language centers of the brain are pitifully weak. Not so the links between the smell and the memory centers, a route that carries us nimbly across time and distance.
