Their MISSION is to tell STORIES without boundaries. This means taking classic stories and allowing our audience to PARTICIPATE and ENGAGE with them in new ways, challenging conventional forms of storytelling, BREAKING open often difficult to access stories, NARRATIVES and PLAYS.
THEY are interested in breaking down the boundaries of stories: creating WORLDS which audience members can explore, edit and question. Their productions Macbeth, The Trialand O Brave New World take universally recognised stories and spill them through LONDON allowing audiences to interact with the characters, situations and events happening around them.

INTERACT WITH THEM

Vito has been WRITING and PERFORMING poetry for the best part of a decade. He draws  inspiration from social interactions. From amazing poets to random stories he hears from lonely people in QUESTIONABLE bars. His ART is his life, thus he lives both in conjunction. LIFE & ART are inseparable that’s why he takes himself to any EMOTIONAL state he feels is necessary when writing, no matter where that path leads. Recently he has started writing PLAYS and SHORT films. Transferring his skills over to these formats opened a whole new world of expression and ARTISTIC INDULGENCE.

Watch this space for more of his material, ‘sure to make you feel,’ is his slogan.

Influences: “HOWL” By Allen Ginsberg, Stephen King, Stanley Kubrick.

I started ImmerCity in 2012 after university. The company is dedicated to creating immersive theatre that focuses on the relationships between characters and audience. I am particularly interested in how a performance changes our perception of space. Much of our work is written for a particular location. For instance we created a ghost walk for Holland Park, a witches seance for the basement of Babel Studios and an alien invasion for a car park in North Kensington.
“The Perilous Party” is being designed especially for the St Pancras clock tower. It was inspired by the idea of a Haunted House Party that is the central feature of the movie ‘The House on Haunted Hill’. It promises to be an evening of macabre entertainment and melodramatic spirits. I have always been a huge Agatha Christie fan, especially of her more spiritual detectives like Mr Harley Quinn. This show is an opportunity to combine a spooky murder mystery with an evening of games and movies. Audience interaction is one of the most joyful (if chaotic) aspects of immersive theatre and this is a wonderful opportunity for us to blend event with performance in a unique way.

WRITER

She is a ONEOFUS alum, having written and directed a short immersive play inspired by Elizabeth Fry and Ruth Ellis for ONEOFUS : WHITECHAPEL in 2012.

Her latest piece, DARLING, is an OPERA-THEATRE experience which invites audiences to help create the SOUNDSCAPE. It loosely uses the ghosts and ill-suited lovers of the 1959 horror film ‘HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL’ as a springboard for the story, and musically, the evocative, religious organ strains of FINZI’s choir music and unearthly harmonies of FAURE’S REQUIEM and ERIC WHITACRE.

She also has an MA in Writing for PERFORMANCE & PUBLICATION from the University of Leeds and was the Yorkshire editor Whatsonstage.com.

EMMA & YATES are the creators of the upcoming ONEOFUS piece AGAINST NATURE. WE caught up with them to examine their influences behind the work.

Against Nature will be a drawing/poem sequence that draws on the grotesque and the monstrous, especially decorative grotesque marginalia. We are interested in how text and image play off one another, and the theatrical possibilities of this. To this end, Emma is writing short pieces of poetry and script, and Yates is drawing. We are going to interweave these so that each person who sees it can piece together their own narrative.

Broadly speaking, our work is interested in the relationship between space, things, people, texts and images. For Against Nature, we have been focusing on the ways in which our relationship with everyday objects offers ways of thinking through the uncanny, a concept in much of our research and making. Drawing on Yates’ research into French eighteenth-century ornament, we have considered matter and affect in decorative schemes, and have considered the relationship between ornament, description, and narrative. This intersection between writing, looking, visualising, and feeling has been integral to our work as a whole. Many of our collaborations deploy text, image, and material as ways of thinking through our research interests.
