Come Bargain With Uncanny Things (Late 2022)

Come Bargain With Uncanny Things 2.jpg

An interactive, immersive opera in which you come and bargain with uncanny things.

Come Bargain With Uncanny Things is a supernatural ritual. Set in an alternate London of eldritch creatures making bargains from the shadows, and a caste of bargainers touching these taboo things under the supervision of cautious locals - our audience - it is (artistically) an exploration of how we relate to our community and wider world and (practically) a chance to feel like you're doing magic, which is really fun.

After a work in progress sharing at Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival in 2021, and a residency in Aldeburgh thanks to a Britten Pears Creative Retreat, it has been refined into an almost-finished form.

We're currently raising funds to bring it back in late 2022 - but for now, you can watch a video of the WIP below, read some blogs about it here, or get in touch to offer support here.

“an original, atmospheric, immersive role-play opera with real promise.” (Four stars)
