Gin has always been one of those drinks associated with creativity and artistic pursuits, this weekend Hendrick’s Gin push those boundaries even further with their fully immersive event The Awakening.
The event invites not only your regular gin drinker but also free thinkers and pursuers of the peculiar to slip into the created world of oddities. The Awakening will see guests embark on an hour-long interactive theatrical journey, encompassing the body and mind with their instincts, emotions and reactions becoming the subject as they delve deeper.
The Awakening will see guests self-guide through a series of unexpected scenarios and theatrical interactions that will be brought to life by Siren Theatre Company, an independent professional theatre company. Audiences will discover a treasury of tipples, daring and intimate spaces, as well as an eccentric revelry of delightfully dark surprises.
Designed to reawaken our natural spirit and curiosity, the experience comes at a time where our senses have been dulled by the devices in our hands and pockets.
“Our vision was to create a one-of-a-kind experience that will leave people feeling provoked, confused, elated, revived and most importantly, awakened.” explained Hendrick’s Gin Brand Ambassador Morgan Flanagan, “With each stage set to trigger a myriad of feelings, The Awakening rewards the inherent inquisitiveness, humour and imagination of all participants, taking them out of their comfort zones in very contrasting ways.”
Along the way guests will be given the opportunity to enjoy a range of fabulous gin cocktails. (JA)
