Care to join an eccentric storyteller with 13 strangers to hear a peculiar tale?
If so, The Curiosity Experiment is for you, the interactive ghost story sees 13 strangers sitting around a table – blindfolded. The Eccentric Host of the evening tells a tale that has been passed down the generations, of a supernatural experience that he himself was part of as a child. Following the premise that “An antique can communicate memories of the past” The Curiosity Experiment is an interactive event with a theatrical flair, old fashion radio-play and most importantly the audience’s own imagination.
2016 saw the birth of The Curiosity Experiment, a unique theatrical experience, creator Nathan Schulz, concentrates on the deprivation of sight during the performance to enhance the other senses and ignite the audience’s imagination – Heightening suspense and power of disbelief. First taking place at Brisbane’s Anywhere Festival, The Curiosity Experiment later continued to Melbourne Fringe Festival with a sold out season.
Schulz says “I wanted to achieve something new, something different, I wanted to go back to a time when people used their imagination. In this way, the audience gets to watch, listen, think and feel having all their senses engaged rather than merely being the observer in a detached way”.
With an invitation to Nathan Schulz Presents theatre company to take The Curiosity Experiment to the 2017 Adelaide Fringe, they have also launched a pozible campaign to help transport their 200-year-old gramophone to South Australia.
