ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
PaintBox brought Earthlings to Saturn in the 1950s immersive walkaround experience, Sockhop on Saturn. Audiences quite literally explored the town of Hyperion Flats, where characters brought them into a story and created a real life “video game style” world where they had a hand in deciding the fate of the story and characters. Over the course of this 2-hour event, 30 actors inhabited the space as audience members were encouraged to follow whomever they chose and be as involved in the narrative as they wanted to be.
