About this event
Cost £12
'Abandon hope all ye enter here' are the infamous words carved into the entrance of Dante Alighieri's vision of eternal damnation. In presenting a dark journey through the complex world of catholic dogma, Dante tries to elucidate the very nature of humanity. This is the inspiration for an original immersive performance devised by the Velvet Loop.

Using live action, multimedia and incorporating the full spectrum of senses this unique performance breathes new life into the epic poem. The audience will be guided by our narrator, Virgil, through hell and back again. The nine levels are represented by nine acts which combine together to explore both the themes of the original text and what relevance, if any, Dante’s idea of hell has today.

“Staring into bleak horizons, gazing at vague familiarities... as you shrivel into a frozen mess of your lifeless soul.” -Virgil

The performance has staggered start times throughout the night. Due to the limited capacity of each start time it is strongly advised that you book tickets in advance.
