They exist in the forgotten spaces.

 

They are beautiful.

They are terrible.

They never lie.

They hoard the truth.

We can bind them.

They are the uncanny things.

 

You are requested and invited to attend a ritual of bargaining in these difficult times.

 

Come Bargain With Uncanny Things continues Virtually Opera’s exploration of interactive, immersive opera. Through bargains, research, charms, and guile, you and your fellow sages must try to resolve the latest incidents. Get it right, and our ritual will be beautiful. Get it wrong, and our guests may become… erratic.

 

Wear a mask. The uncanny things like teeth.

 

The interactive broadcast will feature an opportunity to play with some of the game-based tools Virtually Opera used to make the show, and ask the creative team about the collaborative worldbuilding used for the show.

 

Age range: PG-13

Content advisory: This is an improvised show, and we cannot guarantee its exact content. The following topics may be alluded to, but will not be graphically represented: death, hallucination, violence.

 

In a festival of new work, please note that shows can often overrun.
