An audio dreamscape is coming to Preston as a new immersive theatre show takes place.


Following Fuel Theatre’s show inside a shipping container on the Flag Market the University of Central Lancashire’s Media Factory is hosting their new show Fiction.

It’s a sound journey through complete darkness in what’s described as a ‘unique theatrical experience’.

Audio involved is recorded using binaural sound technology which creates a 3D listening sensation.

The audience are wearing headphones and not able to see the action – just hear it.

This is what Wired magazine had to say: “I haven’t been affected by a show as profoundly in a long time.”

Fiction has been performed previously at the Cambridge Festival of Ideas and Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival.
