Flight — Realscape Productions
Strap yourself into a section of a real airplane, and prepare for an eventful and immersive experience.
Not content with terrifying Melburnians with just one unsettling shipping container installation, the folks at Realscape Productions are about to bring another disquieting experience to the city. While it also involves stepping inside a 40-foot steel box, sitting in pitch darkness and listening to a particularly immersive soundscape, this newcomer — called Flight — 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 possible 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 Southbank's Queensbridge Square from Wednesday, October 30 to Sunday, December 8, with departure times at half-hour intervals.
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.
