Scott Silven is an illusionist, mentalist and performance artist who has garnered success through sell out shows from Edinburgh to Melbourne and New York and beyond with his illusions and storytelling that go back to his childhood fascination with mystery and enigma.
Following a sold-out world tour of his smash hit, At the Illusionist’s Table, Silven now brings his brand new interactive and immersive experience show, The Journey, live and online to Traverse 3 for its UK premiere.
The Journey will take viewers from their home to his in rural Scotland and is realized through a collaboration with a creative team that has worked on some of the most form-pushing theatre shows of recent years.
Scott Silven said, “I’m thrilled to be making my UK premiere of The Journey at The Traverse. After completing my latest world tour, I cannot imagine a better place for my homecoming show. The Journey is a love letter to Scotland, and it feels serendipitous bringing it to a place that inspired me so much growing up.
This is a show about home, place, and the power of connection in these fragmented times. My creative team and I have crafted groundbreaking technology never seen before in the digital realm and woven it through the story and illusions to allow the audience to capture a moment in time where we can truly share in the impossible together. I’m hugely excited to invite UK audiences to take the first step on what will hopefully be an unforgettable adventure.”
The Journey has been co-commissioned by the Traverse and comes with a stellar production crew that includes director Allie Winton Butler; designer Jeff Sugg; writer Rob Drummond; sound designer Gareth Fry and composer Jherek Bischoff.
Each performance of the interactive experience, that’s limited to just 30 participants per show, is uniquely created by participants as their sense of home and connection is explored through a digital journey.
