Did you watch Excess Baggage in the 90’s and wish you were Alicia Silverstone? How about The Game? Well a new LA attraction The Tension Experience will do just that (and like, MUCH worst, horrible things) to you. This is how it would go down: 1) Drive to a dark alleyway where you get blindfolded, kidnapped, and stuffed in a creeper van. 2) You’re dropped into a pitch black labyrinthine warehouse where you’re forced to eat flesh (?), whipped (??), and left in a chair by yourself for a long period of time (???) while ambient music plays (????).
Sounds fun? Check it out:
The show, which styles itself as a “site specific journey of trust, betrayal and submission,” is the brainchild of Darren Bousman, director of the second through fourth entires in the Sawseries.Along with producer Gordon Bijelonic, he’s taken elements of the genre’s most striking recent productions –- Secret Cinema’s interactivity, Sleep No More’s audience participation, The Drowned Man’s lavish production design –- to create an evening that’s part play, part choose-your-own-adventure and wholly terrifying.
