“TRICKS THAT MAKE YOU WANT TO BELIEVE”
A limited run Microtheatre Event
In the late Victorian era, the spiritualists claimed they had discovered a connection to the other side. Drawn from nearly every walk of life but united in their conviction that death was not the end, they called these ghostly encounters Séances. A DECADE LATER, the spiritualist movement had followers in nearly every corner of society. Doctors, lawyers, scientists , even politicians … all flocked to the séance SEEKING the loved ones they’d lost and the answers that science had failed to provide.
Nearly 100 yearS later, Séances continue to capture the public's fascination. But are they truly a gateway to another realm or simply the manifestations of our own terrified imaginations?
Each night, 17 brave participants will attempt to answer that question.
Guided by your host, world-renowned mentalist Jason Suran, throughout a historic five-story Chelsea mansion, The Other Side is an experience you will never forget … and no one will ever believe.
But try not to be afraid. After all, there’s no such thing as ghosts … Right?

What is Microtheatre?
Microtheatre is a multi-sensory genre of performance art that first became popular in post-recession Spain. unlike immersive theatre, which seeks to give large audiences a variety of individual experiences, microtheatre strives to give a small group of strangers a powerful and unifying experience.
In many ways, séances refined this genre decades before it even existed.
