Immersive theatre experience

Darkroom, the flagship project of the Rangaai Theatre Company, is an immersive sensory theatre experience, about three classical stories presented in an experiential way. Here’s a teaser — Upon arrival, while you are still blindfolded, you are greeted with characters from the story whispering in your ears. It is said a scent can bring back some memories and so we expose you with some scents distinctively from each story. You are also given the power to decide the fate of the characters from the story.
