The Incubus

Presented by The Tom Sawyer Effect

The Foundation has been experimenting with the potential of hyper-reality technologies - blending virtual and physical reality to open up the doors of perception and explore what lies beyond, in this unnerving interactive experience for one.

We are looking for subjects willing to open their senses and experiment with their own subconscious. Some of the initial test audiences have reported layers of relaxation and even revelation, while others have reported a dark descent and visions of a strange hooded creature that bears similarity to the Incubus of Victorian psychoanalysis.

It seems that this creature could hold the clue to our sub-conscious and mastering our desires - if you are willing to delve deep enough into your psyche to confront it as part of one of the UK’s first hyper-real VX experiences. Oculus virtual reality will be combined with live experience and physical sensation to create a dark psychological exploration of our inner selves, one psyche at a time.

About the company

The Tom Sawyer Effect

We believe in pervasive experiences. This means we operate across platforms and communities both real and online, wherever we can create a genuine impact with our audiences.

A lot of our work involves social media management, influencer engagement, and digital content creation but we also specialise in pervasive gaming and event activations. We create and implement interactive narratives and games that unfold across social media, mobile and the real world.

Our team has produced many large scale immersive theatre and live game productions over the years. We have delivered immersive experiences for brands such as The Royal Court Theatre, TomTom and CapCom and authors like Stephen King and Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling). We were also partners in the creation of hit escape game Time Run. Most recently we have worked with the Eden Project in Cornwall to create both an escape game and an immersive experience for families: Alien Encounter.

Press & Reviews

Praise for The Pendulum:

No Proscenium: "Within 15 minutes The Pendulum has cultivated a visceral reaction. I know I’ll be feeling the adrenaline high for the rest of the evening.”

LondonTheatre1: Four stars. "I’ve been waiting for VR (Virtual Reality) to become consumer friendly for some time and I’ve waited for it to arrive in popular culture.

In many ways, The Pendulum is that arrival.”

ScareFlix and Thrill: "A truly impressive piece of theatre that is quick to immerse you in its universe and make you question what you perceive as reality"
