Art Of Disappearing

The Last Resort

World Premiere
Commissioned by Brighton Festival

Amidst a barren landscape, a neon light stands bleak and stark. Welcome to The Last Resort. For those brave enough to return to this long deserted resort, beauty, science fiction and history merge to create a unique outdoor experience.

Wearing headphones, you and a partner will embark on a journey along a desolate stretch of beach to rediscover a fantastical reality. Why do transmissions from the past interrupt this guided tour? Why did those that came to this resort never leave?

Using bin-aural technology to create a constantly shifting world of sound, artists Rachel Champion and Tristan Shorr have created an exciting immersive work that takes a wry look at science fiction traditions and dystopian societies. 

This experience is for two people at a time. Bookings can only be made online as a pair.  Family bookings for three are also available online for specific slots. If you would like to book a single ticket please contact the Ticket Office 01273 709 709 or in person and you will be paired with a partner.

Please wear sensible shoes and dress for the weather. We advise you to leave all bags and valuables at home as there is nowhere to leave them and the performance is best experienced without carrying anything. The route is also not suitable for pushchairs.

Please contact access@brightonfestival.org if you have access requirements.

"If you enjoy dystopian ideas, beautiful barren landscapes and sci-fi whilst spending time in an imaginative experience then this is the show for you."
