Environments – a immersive new way to explore Hidden Door

For Hidden Door 2023 we are offering something different; an evolution.

We invite you to enter The Complex; a vast array of architectural hexagons, an artificial structure set apart from the natural world as we know it.

Once inside you’ll encounter The Environments, a series of transformed space and, performance zones featuring live music, dance, soundscapes and visions created by artists and performers collaborating to evoke meditations on the natural landscapes of our planet.

You are invited to embark on a journey that starts in the weird artificial commercial environment of the ex-office building itself, but that will take you through mountains, wasteland, forest and gardens, down to the deep sea bed and even into the depths of the geology of the centre of the Earth.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we reveal more about these unique projects.

How it works

The Environments will run on a repeated loop every night of the festival, from 6pm until late.

You’ll be able to choose a time to start your journey, and once you start exploring this strange dark world, you will find you can roam freely, taking in these Environments as they each come to life and die back back down in a cycle that repeats throughout the whole evening.

Become completely immersed in the creative visions spread throughout the venue, or step out to explore the bars, live music and spoken word performances before you plunge back into your journey of discovery.

At the conclusion of each night,  everyone will come together for a big party in the Club Space and Cabaret Stage.

The Environments will run every night of Hidden Door 2023, 31 May – 4 June.
