13 April – 28 May 2023 Powerhouse Ultimo Book Tickets

Powerhouse Ultimo will host the long-awaited return to Sydney of DARKFIELD’s SÉANCE and the NSW premiere of FLIGHT.

Strange worlds unfold inside shipping containers in the two most popular DARKFIELD immersive theatre experiences.

Presented by Realscape, the experiences utilise striking sets, binaural 360-degree sound, complete darkness and a variety of sensory effects so each participant is situated at the centre of intense, evolving narratives. Audience members are seated, wearing headphones and in complete darkness throughout.


Both SÉANCE and FLIGHT will run regularly from 13 April – 28 May 2023.

Tickets $25 per person per show, concession tickets $20.

Check in 10 minutes before show time, latecomers will not be admitted once doors close.

Suitable for ages 13+, 13 to 15-year-olds must be accompanied by an adult. Read content warnings before finalising your ticket purchase.

Powerhouse is located at 500 Harris St, Ultimo. DARKFIELD’s SÉANCE and FLIGHT will be temporarily installed in the pedestrian accessway outside the museum along the Goods Line.


Step inside, take a seat but don’t get comfortable.

SÉANCE is an intense sonic performance that explores the psychology of a group of people who have been bombarded with suggestible material.

In complete darkness, your senses become vulnerable to persuasion.

We only ask that you proceed with an open mind…

Runtime: about 22 minutes.


FLIGHT is a multi-sensory, multi-universal journey in complete darkness.

The many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics proposes all possible outcomes that could occur are occurring in countless worlds of varying similarity.

Maybe there is some comfort in knowing that however ill-advised your choices have been – there is a version of you who made better ones and is suffering from less regret and embarrassment.

Runtime: about 27 minutes.

“Not for the faint-hearted, SÉANCE is a spine-tingling experience that will leave you wondering just what is out there in the darkness.” ★★★★★ InDaily

“All aboard FLIGHT for a thrill-seeker’s delight” ★★★★ The West Australian
