Gothic Ghost Story set to Thrill Aden Audiences
Hot on the heels of a successful Halloween family fright fest night, Dark Matter is a superb story of madness, passion and death. The performance is a ticket only event which takes place on Friday 18th November, from 7pm, meeting in the central courtyard in Aden Country Park, Mintlaw. Dark Matter immerses you in a skin tingling ghost story, part light installation, part soundscape.
The action takes place all around you and you wear a black cape to ensure you blend in to the landscape, as well as for weather protection. The spooky tale can be performed to a maximum of 30 people, lasts 30 minutes and is potentially unsettling for those of a nervous disposition. As the performer moves through the Aden woods the audience hears the text on the headphones and Tam Treanor‘s amazing soundscape creates a live 3d mix directly in the head of the listener.
Director Symon Macintyre is from Nairn and has directed some spectacular events in The North East, such as Big Man Walking and the Big Shop. His company, Vision Mechanics, has consistently produced innovative, inspiring and interactive events which attract new audiences to the arts. The Company’s projects combine performance, technology and the sights and sounds of both the natural and urban environment.
The Aden Café/Restaurant will be open on the night serving hot food, tea and coffee but please wrap up warm for a scary night in the woods.
Dark Matter is funded by The Davidson Trust and the Northern Scottish Touring Fund (NSTF) which aims to encourage performances to be produced as far as possible in the North of Scotland and enable new collaborations between artists and promoters.
