An extraordinary landscape. A powerful connection. A unique moment in time.

Renowned theatremaker and illusionist Scott Silven invites you to experience the UK premiere of The Journey, an interactive, immersive, live production, unlike anything audiences have experienced before.

When Silven returned to his home in rural Scotland, coming off the heels of a sold-out, highly-acclaimed world tour, he found himself in a place from his childhood that was, all at once, unfamiliar. Thinking about concepts of home, place, and connection, Silven created a digital experience to explore this current moment of isolation and how it can positively affect our future.

For this live, virtual theatre experience, you will use your digital device’s camera, microphone, and headphones to travel from your living room to Silven’s home in rural Scotland - a virtual space filled with beautiful cinematic imagery and high-definition immersive sound. Hear a long-forgotten story, interact directly with Silven in a cutting-edge digital space, and help shape the evening’s extraordinary illusions and mesmerizing events.

With a maximum of 30 guests per show, each intimate, interactive event is constructed by you, your own sense of home and connection, and your fellow travellers inhabiting the same digital space from across the world.

Through the power of storytelling and the work of a masterful illusionist, discover the path that connects you to Silven’s past, your own present, and a collective future. The Journey awaits.

Created with the generous support of The Momentary, The Broad Stage, Hong Kong Arts Festival, Virginia Arts Festival, Arizona Arts Live, Traverse Theatre, Purdue Convocations, UtahPresents, Krannert Center - University of Illinois
