The White Plague: a binaural play
Created by Alexander Raptotasios
LIMITED RELEASE: Experience The White Plague: a binaural play for FREE here on this page or on the pages of all collaborating theatres from Thursday 17th of December at 19.30 UK time - NOW EXTENDED UNTIL February 15th
Ferodo Bridges CIC, Greenwich Theatre, Camberley Theatre, The Spring (Havant), Cranleigh Arts Centre and English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center and Landor Space present an immersive binaural experience developed from the play ‘The White Plague’ that can be experienced for FREE from the comfort of your home with just a pair of headphones.
10 years have passed since a fiercely contagious virus spread among a major city’s population, causing a mysterious white blindness and eventually, society’s collapse. Now five survivors come forward to tell a story they were not allowed to share before. A story of unprepared quarantine facilities and dehumanizing circumstances that drive citizens to expose the very brightest and darkest aspects of their human nature. A story of government negligence, isolation and persevering humanity.
This binaural experience places the audience in the middle of the action as a state-of-the-art sound design transports them to every location of the play and inside every character’s head. A timely and close look at social coherence, gender roles and the survival instincts of a society in crisis.
