Going Dark at the Young Vic

Some time back I saw Kursk at the Young VIc, seriously good, intense and claustrophobic – even my Dad rated it. The same team have produced Going Dark coming up in the Spring, not so far away!

It sounds a bit like a cross between Sunshine and Olafur Eliasson’s Tate installation. And now that Brian Cox has whet our appetite I suspect this will be pretty popular….How far can you see? A mile? A hundred miles? Or to the furthest corners of the galaxy? It’s astronomer Max’s job to ask the cosmic questions in his role as a planetarium narrator. But when his life is turned upside down, Max discovers that understanding the universe requires a different kind of vision…

Created by the pioneering company Sound&Fury, Going Dark uses immersive surround sound design, total darkness and inventive lighting to re-awaken our wonder at the cosmos. 

6 – 24 March. Tickets
