ON-GOING IMMERSIONS


The Lust Experience Haunting Haunting.net forums

The Lust Experience

Location: Online Forum & Slack Forum with In-Person Events for Active Participants + A Large-Scale Ticketed Event

Price: Currently Free

Description: The Lust Experience is the follow-up to the ground-breaking The Tension Experience. Sign up for the forums to speculate and conjecture with other participants. Instead of The OOA Institute, this time it appears that Noah Sinclair and his “The System” can make your dreams of power, love, and money come true. If you don’t lust after power, iConfidant afforded you the opportunity to follow your heart and gain an every lasting friendship. Ultimately, a meta narrative places The Investors, The Creators, and The Experiences themselves against each other as participants perceptions are constantly twisted and turned so that nothing ever is as it appears. Note: this experience is fantastic for those out of state (or out of country).

The Society - The Boanthropic - Interview with Thaddeus Shafer - Hollywood Fringe Festival

The Society / The Boanthropic

Location: Los Angeles + Nation-wide Puzzles + Instagram Accounts

Price: Free Pop-ups + Paid Events

Description: When cult members lose what makes them whole, when at last their will, spirit, and memory are forced from their physical form, their spirits recede into another realm. They swarm in a mass like a herd, lost in the dark. Occasionally, between long droughts of silence, they gather and make themselves known. Sometimes they can be coaxed into our realm, and gather into a force. What that force can do and how it can be gathered are subjects of debate, for those who believe.

Though The Boanthropic has long considered a fairy tale or an urban legend, there have always remained believers, including The Wayfarer, the hermit programmer who gave up his lonely search in 1983, and Beverly, a deaf/mute 60-year-old woman living in Montauk, who has heard the voice of The Boanthropic since she was four. However, Beverly has never experienced what is happening now. The Boanthropic seems to be building an army against one particular group: The Society. The Boanthropic’s mission, it seems, is to rescue a woman named Mary, who is trapped within The Society, on the mountain in which they dwell. Mary is pregnant, and it is suspected that The Society’s leader, “The Founder”, is the father of this child. “Save the Moon Child,” The Boanthropic pleads to those who find the cryptic messages it has left all over the country.

The resistance must help Mary escape from the mountain by infiltrating The Society, and following the path unknown. But what will keep them from becoming Boanthropic themselves?

Check out our interview with The Society here or our first recollection of our trip up the mountain here.

White Helix whitehelix technology integrity blackmail

White Helix

Location: TBD

Price: Online Presence + Free Pop-Up Event in Los Angeles + Presumed Ticketed Event?

Description: White Helix is an ARX/ongoing immersive experience that first appeared online (in the form of an Instagram account under the name _whitehelix) in early 2017. It is tonally influenced by suspense/horror and is themed heavily around information, technology, and exploitation of sensitive data. Social media, cellphones, and computers feature prominently in the story, which appears to have a narrative centered around a software program that is used for gathering sensitive information for blackmail purposes.

As of now, White Helix is still largely shrouded in mystery, but it has developed a small, devoted cult following with whom it actively and consistently engages. Of the ongoing immersions and ARXs out there right now, it is perhaps one of the most exclusive, confounding, and promising. And with its first post having been made only a few months ago at the time of this writing, it seems it’s only just begun.

Infinitely Dinner Theater

While they are not ready to discuss specifics, we were able to learn that they are “headed by immersive vet(s) who are looking to do something new/different without the pressure or expectations of our other projects.” They have hosted numerous Midnight Snack concepts (Read about one here). This definitely sounds like a novel and interesting concept–and one we are very excited about.
