BY PHILIPP OBERLOHR
“Think of a question about your future. Don't tell anybody what it is. Maybe we can find an answer on the other side...”
The uncertainty of the future has driven people to seek the spirits’ advice for centuries. séance plays with our beliefs – sceptics, agnostics and believers alike, when it reveals the answers to our questions... or so it seems.
Join “Ex-Theologist turned Illusionist” Philipp Oberlohr in this dark spectacle with rituals, long lost mediums and the strange experience of knowing what can't be known.
“Leave your beliefs at the door. Together with weak-hearted loved ones... or risk having both of them permanently altered.”
séance draws on the tradition of Victorian Séances and the Spiritualist Movement. It uses illusions to create an interactive experience. séance has toured Europe and has been performed in theatres, cemeteries and a Masonic Temple. Venues include the Barbican Centre, Shunt, Last Tuesday Society, Mauve-Vienna, Old Boys' School Dublin and some strange living rooms.
Illusionist and performer Philipp Oberlohr creates experiences on the border between theatre, performance art and show. Oberlohr studied at the University of Innsbruck, Austria (BA Theology) and at the International School of Corporeal Mime in London.
After almost a decade in the UK, he is now living in Vienna with his wife and son. Oberlohr has received the People's Choice Award 2016 of London's Vault Festival for his show Das Spiel.
