Paul Gato has been through a lot. He has been signed off from the university again. His colleagues say he has not been himself. He has been sending them e-mails filled with ramblings and Feynman diagrams. He said, “There is nothing more dangerous than being trapped between mirrors”. Paul might be losing his mind, but he might still be right. Dare you take part in his final experiment?
An online immersive experience for headphones and a mirror.
The Mirror Trap is a short headphone play/experience/installation/horror story about psychology
and quantum physics. Previous audience members have described it as “weird”, “trippy”, “deeply unsettling”; and “terribly sad”. It is quite meditative in tone, so don’t expect any jump scares. Some viewers may find some of the content triggering.
After the show, its creator, British biologist, writer and science communicator Simon Watt, will be joined by his two Bulgarian guests, neuropsychiatrist Neda Lapteva and physicist Plamen Ivanov, to discuss what you have experienced.
Running time: 45 minutes (including post-show)
