Darkfield presents: FLIGHT

27 October – 6 November 2022

Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to direct your attention to the on-board safety demonstration and ask that you give us your full attention.

In the unlikely event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure alternative scenarios will be provided. Next of kin will be provided. Additional desserts will be provided. An extra pillow. Trumpets and gongs. Neither Heaven nor Hell is assured. We’re not responsible for your final destination.

The many worlds interpretation of Quantum Mechanics proposes all possible outcomes that could occur are occurring in countless worlds of varying similarity. Maybe there is some comfort in knowing that however ill advised your choices have been - there is a version of you who made better ones and is suffering from less regret and embarrassment.

FLIGHT takes place in absolute darkness inside a 40ft shipping container. Its interior exactly resembles an Airbus 320 economy cabin and over 30 minutes explores the Many-Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics, taking audience members through two worlds, two realities and two possible outcomes to their journey. There are many worlds in which this plane lands safely.

Age restriction: 14+

The experience will run once every hour, with a 30 minute running time.

Trigger Warnings: The experience will be in complete darkness and the experience may not be suitable for those with claustrophobia.
