SAN FRANCISCO, CA (October 7, 2021) – Gray Area, one of the country’s premier experimental and performance art organizations, today announced the grand opening of its new large-scale, immersive exhibition Nocturne X, created in partnership with Numina Studio. This grand opening party on Friday, October 29 from 9:00 pm to midnight marks the debut of Nightfall on Nocturne X, a new weekend event series for adults in the expansive exhibition, featuring live DJ performances, experimental theater, and more.
At each of the special Nightfall events, the all-ages exhibit will transform into a 21+ concert space complete with a dance floor, live DJ booth, and paid bar, as well as 360-degree music visualization. Explorers can enjoy an immersive dance party inside a 4000-square-foot forest filled with hundreds of glowing plants that respond to music, touch, and motion in their own mysterious way.
IMMERSIVE THEATER COSTUME PARTY
On October 29th, attendees of the grand opening event will be encouraged to dress up in their favorite space-themed costumes and dance the night away as they are treated to exclusive late-night access to the new exhibit.
This special after-hours event will also feature an immersive theater experience from 13th Floor Theater Company’s cast of actors, dancers, and acrobats called Space Pilots in Spaaaace!. Set against the backdrop of Nocturne X’s glow-in-the-dark forests and psychedelic crystal caves, party-goers are enlisted to help a team of interstellar space pilots as they travel across galaxies to restore the delicate balance of life found within the planet’s biosphere. Through interactive games and other surprises, partygoers will help pull the moon back into orbit, while avoiding a series of unique obstacles in their race to not only save the party but the entire planet.
Led by Nocturne X's Narrative Lead Jenny McCallister and Art Director Zach Fish, the critically acclaimed San Francisco-based theater company is also responsible for producing the recently sold-out immersive performance “Assemblage of Monsters” at the Old Mint.
Zach Fish and Jenny McAllister perform during the 13th Floor Dance Theater’s “Assemblage of Monsters/An Immersive Gothic Fairytale” at the Old Mint Building in San Francisco on Thursday, Aug 19, 2021.
“13th Floor is known for creating fantastical immersive theater adventures”, says Jenny McAllister, “With Nocturne X, we were able to interweave narrative throughout the installation through in-depth exploration of the characters’ environment, background, and belongings rather than directly through performance. I’m really proud of creating a world where it feels like the characters are hovering just off stage.”
A limited number of tickets to the inaugural Nightfall On Nocturne X are available for purchase on Nocturne-X.com, starting at just $30. Stay tuned as more late-night events inside Nocturne X will be announced in the coming weeks.
