August 2018 Update

The time has come to a few details about the next Kernow DAT event, hosted at Heartlands, Pool on the 20th September 2018.

We’re super excited to be partnering up Flat Packed Theatre to showcase a sneak peak at their new internet of things (IoT) powered performance. Not only will the Kernow DAT audience be the first to experience the new show, but we’ll open up a discussion with the team about how the immersive effects were achieved through a mix of common software technologies and industry standard theatre equipment.

Keep on reading for more details about the show and head to our website to get your tickets.


Hyde & Seek by Flat Packed Theatre

In a long-abandoned theatre languishing in one of the seedier corners of Victorian London an enigmatic stage-doorman weaves a grisly tale of the further misdeeds of Mr Hyde and his… ‘acquaintance’, the tormented genius Dr Jekyll.

A macabre ghost story with spatters of murky vaudevillian humour, puppetry, and song; Hyde & Seek is a rip-roaring thriller which expands on the world of Robert Louis Stevenson’s allegory on duality — Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

Utilising innovative IoT LED lighting, chilling surround-soundscapes, a dash of Arduino plus a whole host of other unconventional technical wizardry…. Hyde & Seek is an intimate and lavishly visual story-telling experience. Ghostly figures are glimpsed briefly before vanishing, characters appear out of nowhere, and what you can’t quite see becomes a lot more disconcerting than what you can…
