Seattle Immersive Theatre presents The Place Between: an after-dark spectacular inspired by the fantastical Parisian cabarets of the 1890s and turn-of-the-century spiritualism.
Hidden away in the seedy back pocket of Seattle, there exists a clandestine establishment spoken of only in hushed tones and guarded whispers where guests commune and drink with the dead. Legend has it that this timeless institution, the Place Between, can only be found by those who have received an invitation from its mysterious proprietor, an eccentric connoisseur of all things beautiful and macabre, known only to his staff and clientele as the Baron.
Tonight you and your friends are on his guest list.
You’ll join up to forty others for an intimate evening of otherworldly entertainment, including fortune-tellers, a shadowy chanteuse accompanied by a (once) live band, and a grotesque, Butoh-inspired performance that threatens to take more than just your breath away.
Drown your mortal woes and sample exotic tinctures and libations from the other side of the world at our bar, participate in the evening’s festivities, or strike a deal with the establishment for an unquantifiable price - the Baron rewards the bold, but be careful not to break any of his rules while you’re a guest in his house or you may become one of its permanent fixtures.
New to immersive theatre?
If you've never been to one of our shows before, prepare yourself for something different. This is not your grandparents' theatre. We know our Seattle audience expects something extraordinary on a night out. And we do everything we can to send you home with an experience to remember.
Seattle Immersive Theatre does more than just put on shows. We create events around our audience, plunging them into a visceral experience that cannot be replicated in a conventional theatre. Through the use of real-world locations and entirely original scripts, our audiences are transported to a tangible piece of fantasy within their own world where their imaginations can be stimulated and challenged like never before.
What is Immersive Theatre?
An immersive theatre experience is a play where an audience member can hang a hat on the fourth wall. You might be assuming the role of a student receiving a lecture on the paranormal, or a tourist being guided through a steam power plant. Throughout the course of a production, you might converse directly with cast members, handle props, or even have to wonder where the play ends and reality begins. There are no spotlights to tell you what you’re supposed to be looking at, no musical cues to tell you what to feel, and no dimming lights to tell you when the play has started; your individual experience will be a wholly unique thing.
In Seattle Immersive Theatre, we believe that the immersive play represents a solid future for the theatrical arts. It’s a step far outside of what is safe and conventional, and one that routinely leaves audiences with something that they cannot get from the many other theatres throughout the Seattle area. We hope that you will join us for our next production, so that you might discover the magic that a long list of sold-out audiences have already discovered.
