In 2014, five people died in an illegal medical experiment in a Canal Street basement. Before their families could learn what happened, the incident was covered up: buried under a mountain of legal procedures and sealed behind a web of police tape. No one knew how those five people came to participate in the experiment, or what they were doing; only that it cost them their lives. Some of their survivors moved on. Some fell apart. A handful kept fighting, and after five years, they’ve finally won the opportunity to unseal the laboratory, and learn what took their loved ones from them. When you enter the world of The Mortality Machine, you’ll take the role of one of those survivors, venturing into basement for the first time. And what you’ll find defies science and hope.

The Mortality Machine is an immersive theatre experience that combines live-action-roleplay and site-specific dance. Participants assume the roles of surviving family members of loved ones who died in a medical experiment, and must not only solve the mystery of their deaths, but confront their own attitudes about mortality and loss. No two experiences of The Mortality Machine will be the same.

Content Warning: The Mortality Machine contains depictions of medical procedures, death and grieving, partial nudity, mild sexuality and profanity. It is not suitable for children under the age of 18.
