The Nyx Project

The Nyx Project is Whitworth’s first immersive theatre project. Inspired by acclaimed performances such as Then She Fell and Sleep No More, this piece explores a modern interpretation of Greek mythology while closing the divide between audience and actor.


Immersive theatre seeks to create a more personal performance for the audience. Throughout their time in the home of Zeus and Hera, guests are led throughout the space to view primarily movement-based scenes in groups of five or less; they may even be invited to interact with a character one-on-one. By connecting with characters and inspecting the room around them, guests may find that there’s something more than a dinner party to be found.


Please note that this performance requires audience members to move throughout Cowles Auditorium, including climbing a medium-sized staircase. However, we are committed to making this performance as accessible as possible, and are able to adapt the performance accordingly.
