After the incredible team worked their socks off to make the show happen, from scratch in a completely different country, Shari Frilot of Sundance, Charlie Philips of the Guardian and Andrew Golis, decided that Door Into The Dark should be awarded the prize for best project in the Storyscapes section of Tribeca Film Festival 2015. We are all very happy.
This is what they said:
“In an overwhelming media environment in which we struggle for control, we recognize a work that viscerally reconnects us with the value of letting go. It offers a meticulously crafted storyworld that allows us to cerebrally, emotionally, and quite literally leave our baggage behind and step into the void. In that void we become disoriented, take risks, make choices and find ourselves again, changed. Ambitious, simple, and profound, this work marks a fresh and promising direction for the field of immersive theater. It evoked a euphoria that stayed with us long after we left it.”
