Knot: The Trilogy

Close your eyes and let Darkfield radio lead you into the surreal, suggestive and truly suspenseful. Returning after their sell out show Seance in 2017, Darkfield have created another experience set to tantalise and terrify audience members in equal measure.

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.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Location

The Blurb

Knot is a trilogy, a three-part immersive audio experience unfolding in three different locations – for the first episode audiences will situate themselves on a park bench, for the second in a car, and for the third in a room of their home. Three intersecting, interwoven episodes question how inevitable anything is. You will need to experience all three for the story to be complete. To access the experience you will need a phone, the Darkfield Radio app, tickets and headphones.
