More on Candle House Collective
Candle House Collective is the creation of Evan Neiden. Their mission is to engage participants with personal and innovative methods of immersive storytelling, with a focus on intimate, customized experiences. They aim to create unique, interactive environments that make up the difference between the real and the imaginary, exploring the liminal relationship between humanity and storytelling. These stories ask questions of the audience that they don’t have the time or the right to ask themselves, and further, hold a space in which audiences can these questions can be explored amidst the intimacy and surrealism of humanity.
lastcandlearx: lastcandlearx is best described as a sentient radio drama with a memory of and unique relationship with each person who tuned in. In more technical terms, it was an entirely remote, experimental fusion of immersive theatre and alternate reality game, transpiring over phone calls, emails, and instant messaging. While starting off as a simple retelling of the Princess and the Frog, lastcandlearx evolved into a series of experiments taking place at a mysterious Asylum. Participants could choose to interact only with the fairy-tale aspect or dive into the full narrative via the Slack forums.
