The Los Angeles area will soon get a couple of experiences that rest comfortably between something that is most terrifying and refreshingly invigorating.
Screenshot Productions has unveiled, for your travel consideration, a couple of audience-participation performances this fall that will offer far more macabre perspective than you might be used to.
“Bardol Thodol” promises the kind of high-end production that will help your life flash before your eyes. Essentially, you get to reflect and put your life into perspective without all that nasty dying business.
Screenshot Productions explains: “The audience member will find themselves in the state between death and reincarnation where they will be challenged to look back on their life and within themselves to recognize the nature of their mind and attain liberation for the cycle of rebirth.”
To make this all the more interesting (read: horrifying), you will be meandering around the expanse acquired at 704 S. Spring Street by your little lonesome.
Lest any think this is akin to walking the concourse of a haunted house, think again. Screenshot Productions means business and requires attendees to fill out a questionnaire to ensure they get an experience specific to their own life.
If you aren’t into performances that illustrate what it’s like to shuffle off this mortal coil, then perhaps you want something a bit more adventurous but similarly dark and mesmerizing.
Screenshot Productions will also offer “The Rope,” which is yet to call a specific location home.
Via press release, we discover what “The Rope” is all about: “a highly interactive and immersive horror experience taking the participant through a dark fantastical world in which each step, each response, and each decision made influences the world around them.”
In case you aren’t captivated yet, the production company continues: “They will be taken to a strange land, through the darkest moments of waking life, and subject to a variety of obstacles and interactions to challenge their sanity.”
Because you are far more courageous than most, you undoubtedly want to know how to get tickets to the show. The website has a link to procure your reservation.
Bardol Thodol, which will take place throughout September, costs $50. The Rope – in October – will run you $65.
But really, how can you put a price on something this intense?
