Q: Immersive, so basically… what even is that?
For us immersive shows mean that there will be no seated audience. You’re free to roam around and explore the whole building and the 1400m² of space. You get to choose what characters and stories you follow. But remember to chill. The show happens in all spaces at once, so no rushing or panicking will make it possible for you to see everything. Take it easy, be adventurous, walk alone, make choices and immerse yourself.
Q: Do I need to prepare somehow before?
Indeed you do. The evening has a dress code. So dress fully in black. This is not a request.
You will be given a mask upon arrival that will cover the top half of your face, so if possible wear contact lenses.
Q: What I might forget to ask?
Cloakroom? Check, we have one. Toilets? Check, but they will be accessible only once the show has started. So don’t drink 3 coffees before arriving. Intermission? No, but you are more than happy to make one for yourself by finding a sweet spot to hang in. Who's performing? We’ll never tell. Ok, we will, but later. What is the show actually about? Hysteria is an awe-inspiring tale about forcing people into boxes and giving them labels. A show about what happens when it’s all too much. Hysteria is a labyrinth where you can lose yourself.. Like really lose yourself. Will I get anxious or sad? Depends. We feel like it gives hope more though than those vibes. But we are all different. Also... some beautiful and wholesome things we promise. Am I allowed to dance? In our productions ALWAYS. Kaboom!
Q: Am I expected to participate or perform?
You can take it easy. Just by being there and having your eyes and ears open is enough. Also no one is going to touch you or invade your space. This show is not participatory. The performers enjoy doing their thing, so let’s not take that away from them. That said, there might be a few moments where you have the chance to take part in the plot lines and adventures. Would not miss those if I were you.
Q: Wait a minute, the show is not in the centre of Helsinki?
You will get the exact location of the venue later via email. It is easily reachable with public transportation from the centre of Helsinki. Travel time is approximately 20min from the centre.
Q: Does the performance have an age limit?
Yes, age limit is 18. Non negotiable. PG stuff can be found elsewhere.
Q: If I’m late can I still make it to the performance?
No, no and no. Doors will be locked and no one can hear you.
Q: For reals, even if only a little bit late?
To be honest, we might have been late once or twice in our lifetime. So we are strict but caring. Upon arrival you might find a phone number that might help you to enter the immersive world, even when arriving late.
Q: How long is the performance?
The perfect length. But you can make it to the centre of Helsinki for a drink by 10pm, if needed.
Q: How have the safety measures with covid been taken care of?
Even though we’d love to think the pandemic does not reach the world of Hysteria, it unfortunately does, since it’s still happening in the real world. So only come if feeling healthy.
𝗖𝗢𝗩𝗜𝗗-𝟭𝟵 𝘀𝗮𝗳𝗲𝘁𝘆: We will follow the regional safety guidelines and restrictions. We reserve the right to require the COVID-19 passport for people aged 18+: kanta.fi/en/web/guest/covid-19-passport
Q: Is the venue accessible?
Unfortunately the space/ show is not accessible. The venue is not accessible with a wheelchair. The building has four floors, stairs, uneven ground, dimly lit places, loud noises, strobo light and no elevator. With needed certification, we are more than happy to offer a personal assistant a free ticket (please contact: tuottaja@00100ENSEMBLE.com). We will also make new worlds more accessible in the future.
Q: Who are you people?
We are a Helsinki based collective and we love to create large scale immersive shows/ worlds for people to adventure into. You can find more info about our previous work by clicking *home* at the left corner above.
Q: Will our phones be taken away? Will there be food? Will I hear a song?
Enough with the questions! Just go and buy your ticket. All will be revealed.
