“FoolishPeople's immersive theatrical experience propels visitors into the dark and disturbing world of a haunted cinema where the doomed characters come to life with devastating consequences.” — Evening Standard
“The production fuses the haunting, authentic dreamworlds of David Lynch and the theatrical philosophies of Antonin Artaud....to create a vivid and disturbing reality to powerfully draw in the audience.” — Nick Dawson, Filmmaker Magazine Fall 2013 Issue
“Immersive theatre pioneers, FoolishPeople have manifested a live cinema production that takes you deep into the heart of a horror film, albeit a surreal one...Immersive theatre at its best.” — Sarah Stewart, Londonist
“Strange Factories, an immersive, theatrical and cinematic tour de force.” — British Airways, Things to do in London, What's Hot, October 2013
“I found the entire night an inspiring and beautiful experience from start to finish. It felt like a hundred different storytelling techniques were used, drawn from the past few centuries and woven together to explore the age old questions of what art is. I was captivated from the beginning and the ballet crescendo struck a perfect end note to evening that felt like one long dance. It was fitting that a night celebrating the early days of the moving image should be so truly magical.” — Neil McComb, Alt-Entertainer
For over two years, FoolishPeople toured Strange Factories, as part of a haunted and live immersive screening, to the oldest and most historical independent cinemas in the UK.
