At the 40 Winks Hotel: Seance

At the 40 Winks Hotel: Seance

Part of a new supernatural-themed series of events at the 40 Winks,  ‘SEANCE’, is a carefully contrived reconstruction of the Victorian Seance by Vienna-based master illusionist and former theologian, Philipp Oberlohr.

It is an immersive, intimate experience combining illusion, spectacle and some profound perturbation. It has toured Europe and has been performed in theatres (including the Barbican, Arcola, Yard, and Lyric Hammersmith), cemeteries and even a Masonic Temple.

It has had lots of fantastic press: ‘the accuracy of his guesses: genuinely spooky!’ (Time Out), ‘Intelligent, artistic, very funny, and a master class in impressive illusions. Unmissable. It’s mind-blowingly good. Oberlohr is a marvellous entertainer with tremendous charisma… a truly entertaining riot of amazement and amusement. Go see it.’ (Everything Theatre), ‘supernatural… a spooky one man show’ (Irish Times).
