ALONE: AN EXISTENTIAL HAUNTING
ALONE is an ongoing, site-specific, fully-immersive and existential experience that explores the range of human emotions. Presenting itself in a variety of configurations, this experience explores the complex folds of the human psyche, placing you as the participant within dreams and fantasies and nightmares that you may have had and within those that you definitely have not. Your body may be touched and moved or tenderly embraced or be utterly left displaced and alone.

More about A L O N E
ALONE is a fully immersive, walk through experience which you participate at some times in the company of others but mostly by yourself. Lying somewhere in-between surreal fever dream, art installation, evocative abstraction, and immersive theater, this company is one of the best experiences for those looking try experiential entertainment that includes contact. Thus, with this inclusion, it is only for people who are 18 years of age or older. Further, they explore the conditions of the human experience in all forms–never shying away from exploring any emotional.
Alone rarely uses face characters in their narratives; instead, they often focus on the faceless corporate structure of the Enola Foundation–which gave way to form Alone Inc in recent iterations. This enigmatic organization does not care about you, but does care about your body and your emotions. You may meet with their elders, their salesman, or just shapeless bodies in the dark.
Some experiences you may find yourself in a group situation, but as in life, you will eventually find yourself to be alone. Prepare to feel something and interact with the actors. These shows are incredibly immersive. You will be touched.
Selected previous shows include:
Index of Reflection: an exploration of light, sound, self and surrounding. It was a multi-site, real world experience lasting one to three hours, which required you to explore downtown Los Angeles with an extensive auditory soundtrack.
Index of Absorption: As light is absorbed, darkness remains. Step into an industrial location and prepare to be absorbed by the armless hugs of the Enola Foundation.
AloneInc Acheland: the first in a series of shows in 2016 that delve into the psychology of self v. system, personhood v. corporation and comfort v. threat. This was an hour long experience that you must go through alone.
The Mushin of the Ashen Deer Clan: An hour long, narrative based presentation and the second show in a pair of concomitant offerings. Presented on the grounds of ScareLA. Participants must encounter and discern the entry point.
Simulacrum: A forty-five minute experience that began during Camp Fangoria. This experience explored the role of a performer and audience, utilizing the actual stage of the Montalbán theater, the backstage dressing rooms, and even the crawlspace beneath the stage. Audiences were encouraged given full agency to explore in this experience–and with numerous riddles to uncover, guests united, got lost, and ultimately learned what the role of the audience truly is.
