News   Immersive Show The Alving Estate Releases Haunting New Trailer
 
Journey Lab and Deaths Head Theatrical have released the trailer for The Alving Estate, a new immersive theatre experience inspired by Henrik Ibsen's classic play Ghosts. The 1950s-set show will play the Morris-Jumel Mansion in Washington Heights in early 2016.

Performances of The Alving Estate will begin Jan. 21, 2016, and continue through Feb. 26 for a limited engagement. Each show will admit a limit of 35 audience members per performance, who are invited into the world of the show as "household help."

"We are very excited to bring this piece to New York audiences," said Journey Lab artistic director Victor Carinha in an earlier press statement. "[The production] will fully envelop audiences in the text but allow them to be fully immersed in this site sympathetic environment."

"As a precursor to the events of Ibsen's play – dealing with the intimate relations of a family struggling to keep secrets in, and the demons out – audiences craft their own narrative by engaging in scenes, exploring the estate and influencing unfolding events," states a description on the Journey Lab website

The show is billed as a companion piece to the company's upcoming Give Me the Sun, also slated for 2016. Journey Lab's earlier work, Astor and Grey, was performed as an intimate series in local cafés. Deaths Head also has a history of immersive theatre-making, most notably, last year's sold-out show at the Morris-Jumel Mansion.

Tickets, from $20, can be purchased by visiting JourneyLab.org. The Morris-Jumel Mansion is located at Roger Morris Park, 65 Jumel Terrace, New York.
