Darkfield Radio returns with another chilling audio experience which heightens and beguiles the senses, causing you to question what’s real and what isn’t. This subsequent broadcast VISITORS has a supernatural twist as it explores humans’ desire to connect through physical touch.
Just like its predecessor, this work is best experienced in pairs. Similarly participants are invited to sit (this time) in their living room, opposite each other, and to follow the instructions prompted by the audio.
The scene is set with two visitors who have let themselves in to your home. Their motives are unknown but from the get-go there is something quite eerie about these individuals and as the plot unfolds, it becomes apparent that there are more sinister intentions afoot.
Realscape Productions, the brains behind these broadcasts are masters at manipulation, employing brilliant use of binaural sound technology to create a world in your mind’s eye which you easily fall for. The superbly devised soundscape effortlessly convinces you that someone is whispering in your ear or the footsteps approaching from behind are real. With this particular story, unlike the first instalment, you are invited to move around which adds another dynamic layer to the experience.
VISITORS is a hauntingly disturbing encounter which will give you genuine goosebumps. In this current pandemic times, while we are fortunate enough in New Zealand to be able to attend live entertainment shows, for those who may still be a little hesitant or simply wish to “catch a show” from home, this hits the spot.
VISITORS is currently broadcasting 4 days a week at 8PM and 10PM. Tickets are $20.70 for two, book now at darkfield.nz
