Following our previous blog all about the concept and making of the invitations for a collaborative showcase entitled, Wild Tonic, it is now time to show you the event itself. As they say ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ so here we have a beautiful film of the evening made by The Dreamcatchers followed by stunning photographs captured by Kate Nielen.
‘Within Nine Adam street we will create an immersive dream landscape for the senses where we will unpack from different worlds the elements that create a party or an event’ – Adam Blackwood, founder Private Drama
‘Each room will provide the guests with the opportunity to explore a sequence of sets that will engage the senses and within which they will be able to experience a variety of tastes, sights, sounds, fragrances and textures in a highly stylised theatrical world’
‘On arrival there was a living and breathing Gainsbough-esque floral creation by Larry Walshe set within a gilded frame, a beautiful life size flower portrait. A Tim Walker inspired model lolling gracefully over the staircase welcomed guests who made their descent into the central rooms.’
‘As guests entered they were also told there would be charms to collect and given a special bracelet for them to be threaded onto’
Incredible food and cocktails were served by Last Supper alongside a hedonistic feast for the senses amongst visuals, sound and immersive entertainment.
‘Peopling this immersive world were our actors, telling the story of the evening, interacting with the guests and holding the secret code to winning the all important charms’
‘The line up of rolling entertainment happened in different places and only once a 1920s swing band, a sultry jazz singer, an impressive female magician, a trio of glamorous close harmony singers, a natty hip hop group, a mind reader, dramatic flamenco and guitar, a brilliant and improvised trumpet and tap dancer these either snaked through the main bar, performed on the story-book proscenium arch stage or the contortionist was found in a box on the dining room table…..’
“It was a world of surprises, which just kept coming” is how one guest described it, “better than Punchdrunk” was another.
