Part immersive storytelling, part obstacle course, In the Dark is a live game, in which audience members (or “players”) take hold of their own stories and question their own relationship to faith.
This participatory journey takes you through the world of the Fellowship of the Aquara, a self-help cult founded by the charismatic Poseidon Maleström BFA around values of inner strength, energy and expanded awareness inspired by an extraordinary marine creature: the Mantis Shrimp
