Flight — Realscape Productions
Strap yourself into a section of a real airplane, and prepare for an eventful and immersive experience.
Not content with terrifying Brisbanites with one unsettling shipping container installation this spring, the folks at Realscape Productions have another disquieting experience ready to take flight. It's actually called Flight, too — and while it also involves stepping inside a 40-foot steel box, sitting in pitch darkness and listening to a particularly immersive soundscape, this newcomer offers something distinctive.
If you're not fond of flying or don't cope well with the possibility of things going awry in the air, you might want to stay away. If your nerves and stomach can handle all of the above, step onboard. You won't actually be jetting anywhere, of course; however you will be strapping yourself into a section of a real commercial airliner, then pondering the many outcomes if the cabin suddenly happened to lose pressure. Created by Glen Neath and David Rosenberg, like Seance, Flight draws upon the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics while taking attendees on a multi-sensory journey.
Flight lands at Reddacliff Place from Thursday, September 19 to Saturday, October 5, with tickets on sale now.
Buckle up, and prepare to have your head completely messed with — unless you're claustrophobic, pregnant, or suffer heart or back conditions, in which case you'll have to firmly stay on the ground.
