A show taking place in complete darkness is aiming to transport audiences to an alternate reality.

Ring is coming to the Battersea Arts Centre (BAC) for its London Premiere, writes Alexandra Rucki.

The play is described as a sound journey which plays on the senses, creating a unique experience which undermines common theatrical conventions.

Audience members are given headphones and then transported to another room in an alternate reality.

People identify them, love and distrust them in equal measures, creating the eerie sense of presence when nobody is there.

The show is a collaboration between director David Rosenberg and writer Glen Neath.

Binaural technology has been used to create the sound, which creates a 3D listening sensation, giving the performance intimacy and immediacy.

The focus placed on sound builds on Rosenberg's earlier works in Electric Hotel and Motor Show.

Rosenberg is an experimental theatre director who co-founded the art collective Shunt, set up to pursue the role of an audience in theatrical productions.

Neath is a writer whose work spans across two novels, spoken word and plays, as well as collaborations with Radio 4.

Ring, Battersea Arts Centre, Lavender Hill, Battersea, March 11-28, doors 7.30pm (9pm on March 27 & 28), tickets £12 (£8 concs), visit bac.org.uk or call 0207 223 2223.
