Open your mind to a brand new “lucid dreaming” experience brought to you by DotDotDot, a company creating layered reality experiences that specialises in incorporating live performance, multi-sensory elements and immersive technologies into their work.
‘Somnai’ is an augmented-reality show discreetly taking place across a two-story warehouse in Clerkenwell. In this 90-minute show, in groups of up to 6 people, you’ll be transported to the future where AI helps you explore your dreams.
On joining your group, you’ll be asked to change into pyjamas before your personal dream guide leads you through a series of “dream worlds” built from virtual and augmented reality.
Every theatre-goers experience will differ completely as Somnai allows you to control and determine your journey in this personalised, unique experience.
Dotdotdot will be creating an enhanced experience through your senses, working with aroma specialists to evoke emotional responses, a sound specialist from Harry Potter and a technical specialist from The Secret Cinema.
Immersive theatre became widely popular following Punchdrunk’s epic ‘The Drowned Man’ back in 2014. Since then the demand for more immersive experiences is growing and with artists pushing their performances to the limit; everyone’s wondering if this is the next iconic show London’s been waiting for! We certainly think so. Find out for yourself and book your tickets now to avoid disappointment.
