News   New Immersive Show The Alving Estate Opens Tonight
 
The Alving Estate, a new immersive theatre experience inspired by Henrik Ibsen's classic play Ghosts, officially opens in New York Jan. 21. Performances of the 1950s-set show take place in the historic Morris-Jumel Mansion in Washington Heights.

Presented by Journey Lab and Deaths Head Theatrical, The Alving Estate is scheduled to continue through Feb. 26. Each show admits a limit of 35 audience members per performance, who are invited into the world of the show as "household help."

"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 new production is co-created, co-conceived, and co-directed by Victor Carinha, Christy Casey, Anthony Logan Cole, Mia Zanette, Jennifer Wilson, Liz Lehman and Deaths Head Theatrical.

The show is billed as a companion piece to the company's upcoming Give Me the Sun, also slated to debut this year. 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.
