BRILLIANT [working title]


Digital, Family, Installation, Music/Sound, Theatre

DARKFIELD’s new project for families uses their signature techniques in a completely new way, to make the darkness a place of wonder, rather than a place of fear.


Over 30 minutes, BRILLIANT [working title] will take families on a journey of awe and wonder, through fantastical surreal landscapes and dreamlike settings, utilising the vivid imagination of young audience members and DARKFIELD’s signature use of containers, darkness, sound and sensory effects. 

BRILLIANT [working title] will explore how darkness can be an exciting place to dream and imagine, rather than something to fear. It will also explore this more figuratively: that not knowing, or being ‘in the dark’, doesn’t have to be scary either.  The show is about curiosity, adventures, and exploring the unknown…and what the future holds for us all.


DARKFIELD produces innovative immersive experiences at the forefront of technology and theatre – both location based experiences and digital work. Their location-based work utilises striking sets and shipping containers, binaural 360 degree sound, complete darkness and a variety of sensory effects, where each participant is situated at the centre of intense, evolving narratives.

DARKFIELD RADIO brings their work and binaural audio into the audience’s environment via a phone app; their home, their car, their local park become the setting for strange worlds to unfold around them, stealing them away from reality.

Alongside partners around the world, DARKFIELD is touring work in the UK, Australia & New Zealand, China, US & Canada, South Korea and Mexico and have so far reached over 250,000 audience members worldwide and counting.
