THEATRE (IMMERSIVE & CONVENTIONAL)
Immersive theatre or traditional. Both of them are fantastic and have their own value, so what’s the difference you ask? Well, we all love the classic films of Lion King, Aladdin, Pretty Woman and even Frozen. All of these have been turned into West End and Broadway plays, where you enjoy the play in the same way that you would any other play. It’s great, you get to watch a theatre production of something that you’ve seen on film or TV, but this time it’s real and in front of you. Peeerfecttt.
But wait, then there’s this thing called immersive theatre. This is when companies like Secret Cinema have really made their names. It’s the ultimate way to enjoy and divulge yourself into the world of your favourite movie or TV show. You’re not just watching a play with actors, but you actually are in it! In many cases you walk around a 360 degree, fully immersive REAL world where you can buy food, drink, and dance and participate in tasks that are all designed to make you feel like you are in the world of your favourite story. Actors interacting with you left, right and centre – can you wish for anymore!
