Insidious 3-21

“Ex-theologist turned illusionist” Philipp Oberlohr turns oracle. This reconstruction of a Victorian séance is an evening of uncanny spectacle. Prepare for darkness, rituals and answers to all life’s questions.

Leave your beliefs at the door, together with weak-hearted loved-ones – or risk having them permanently altered.

“supernatural… a spooky one man show”
Irish Times

Since no-one really knows, what’s happening in the afterlife, there is always room for one more speculation. Welcome to séance. an interactive illusion.
séance. is a theatre event combining illusions and audience participation. It draws on the tradition of Victorian Séances and the Spiritualist movement. It gently plays with the audience’s beliefs, asks many questions and yet refuses to answer any. Except for the questions the audience is merely thinking of.


“the accuracy of his guesses: genuinely spooky.”
Time Out London
