An Immersive Fantasy for VAULT Festival 2017
“There is a crossroad between worlds, where reality thins and cracks begin to appear. The journey between dimensions is neither quick nor easy, and sometimes travellers need a place to rest and relax, and to drink. We call this place The ‘Neath.”
The ‘Neath was an immersive experience produced and curated by SPECIFIQ and Dean Rodgers (HEIST, Time Run, The Crystal Maze Live Experience) for VAULT Festival 2017. The ‘Neath sold out over its week-long run and was awarded the prestigious ‘Spirit of the Festival Award’.
The interactive bar featured performances and stories created by some of London’s most exciting immersive theatre makers, including: Martin Coat (Director of Theatre at Boomtown Fair and Co-Artistic Director of Dank Parish), differencEngine (HEIST, The People’s Revolt), Sarah Morris (formerly of Apocalypse Events), Deirdre McLaughlin, and Natalie Scott and Joseph Thorpe (Artistic Directors of The Lab Collective).
