Himheranit Productions + And What? Queer. Arts. Festival invite you to enter GARDEN
- a surreal immersive experience for ONE audience member at at time -
Inside GARDEN you become immersed in an alternate world, inhabited by characters that invite you to question both their identity and your own. It is a land where no story is ever written the same. It is one where you become the protagonist of your own fairy-tales. GARDEN eclipses your perceptions of reality, your idea of self, and of the other.
Free yourself from the world you see around you, lose yourself in GARDEN, find another you.
Who are you? Which rabbit do you follow?
GARDEN is a unique performance experience, unusual in that it is for only one audience member at at time. Your journey will last approximately 45-50 minutes. You will be contacted from GARDEN ahead of your arrival to confirm the visit. Upon arrival you will be greeted by a GARDEN representative and gifted with all you need for a safe and enlightened passage. From then onward you will travel into a surreal world, guided through curtained corridors, led under dim lights and washed-over by ambient soundscapes (light, sound & tech design Jeppe Cohrt) . The visual world of GARDEN is partly-inspired by Alice in Wonderland and Twin Peaks; it is a bespoke world built inside a custom built set and housed within an old municipal library. It includes two casts of performers (Andreas Constantinous & Dagmara Bilon or Tone lorenzen & Nick Finegan, depending on when you arrive). In other words, there is nothing else like GARDEN.
GARDEN comes to London fresh off-the-back of two sold-out runs in Denmark and a nomination for a Reumert Award 2018 in category of best performance. GARDEN was listed as one of the top ten best performances in Denmark by Den 4. Væg published December 2017.
Tickets are very limited. Tickets must be purchased online as no tickets will be sold on the door due to limited availability. Please book ahead to avoid disappointment.
