Close your eyes and let Darkfield radio lead you into the surreal, suggestive and truly suspenseful
In a climate currently dominated by zoom calls and virtual working, this production stands out from the crowd. Knot: the trilogy is an intimate online offering that cuts through bad signal and paired back performance to give us an audio experience like no other, from the comfort of our own home.
The company creates anticipation with countdowns, codes and very little information on what to expect. Although this could lead to a little technical difficulty if you’re not prepared, this adds a layer of suspense that mirrors the days of eagerly waiting in the queue to get in.
A tale of three parts; this show is divided into three sections: the park, your car and your own home. Darkfield uses volume, distance and texture to transport us to an exact point in the story. With our eyes closed, the line between reality and fiction blurs, showcasing the dazzling sound quality, production and arrangement of this show.
This truly immersive production boasts impressive writing too. Though the plot seems surreal and disjointed, the use of repetition and playful prose draw us further into the story; hoping for clarity and sense amongst the noise.
A story with no beginning or end, Knot: the trilogy is best enjoyed in the locations directed with almost everything left as a surprise. This show is not only a well crafted piece of theatre, it's a digital experience that's ahead of its time. Darkfield have captured intimacy, closeness and connection in a way that many fail to in the current landscape of remote performance.
