'Delightfully chilling', 'storytelling at its best', 'it makes your heart skip a beat', 'Intoxicating', 'my emotions were intensified', - Audience members

'a creepy and enjoyable experience' - Ben Smith, Beat Magazine

In the traditional form of story-telling on Christmas Eve, The Curiosity Experiment is an interactive ghost story that will see 13 people sitting around a table "“ blindfolded and told a story that has been passed down the generations, of a supernatural experience that the host himself was part of as a child. Following the premise that "An antique can communicate with you via your dreams" The Curiosity Experiment is a story telling event with a dash theatrical flair, old fashion radio-play elements and most importantly the audiences own imagination.

Founding 'Nathan Schulz Presents' theatre company in 2015, Nathan Schulz presented "Light Out Vol .1" a night of Victorian era ghost stories, told only by candle light, to intimate audiences after a successful run of another mind bending theatrical production called "Accomplice" written by Rupert Holmes, at a local theatre company on the Gold Coast. "Accomplice" earned him Best Director and Outstanding Community Theatre Production at The Gold Coast Theatre Area Awards in 2015.

Looking for another mind bending experience to take the audience on 2016 saw the birth of The Curiosity Experiment. Out to create a unique theatrical experience, Schulz concentrates on the deprivation of sight during performance to enhance the other senses and ignite the audience's imagination and heighten the suspense and power of disbelief. First taking place this year at Brisbane's Anywhere Festival, the show was met with success and the screams for more.

Schulz says "I wanted to achieve something new, something different, I wanted to go back to a time when people used their imagination. In this way the audience gets to watch, listen, think and feel having all their senses engaged rather than merely being the observer in a detached way".

Do you dare to let your imagination run wild? Or will you peek beneath the blindfold?

Warning show contains scares, mature and sensitive themes. Audience members are blindfolded for the duration of the performance. Audience participation, touch, smells and loud noises are also utilized.
