Distortions in Spacetime at Science and Industry Museum, Castlefield, 18–28 October 2018 - Book now

Ever wanted to explore one of the biggest mysteries of the universe and step into a black hole? Distortions in Spacetime, headline event for Manchester Science Festival is one of our unmissable experiences of the year.

Audio visual pioneers Marshmallow Laser Feast never fail to provide some of the most amazing art-science-virtual-reality environments. Lucky for us that we can step into their brand stonking new experience in the Science and Industry Museum‘s atmospheric 1830 Warehouse.

Fascinated by “whirlpools of energy left over from the creation process of life in the universe”, Distortions in Spacetime has been created from months of research into black holes and the phenomena in and around them.

Expect some mega sensory amazement. A huge interactive video wall complete with 360 degree mirrored infinity setup will enable you to lose yourself in the sensation of drifting through space. Get squashed, stretched, spaghettified or just enjoy the changing particle jets and incredible light.

We love that each year Manchester Science Festival continues to surprise and push the boundaries, showcasing the latest and best interactive arts experiences in unexpected ways. Distortions in Spacetime looks set to continue to cement Marshmallow Laser Feast’s reputation for making the impossible possible and the invisible visible. No mean feat by any stretch of the imagination.

Whether you are feeling playful, curious, or just want to relax and absorb, Distortions in Spacetime promises to be out of this world for sure.

Suitable for age seven and over, look out for special adult late night events. Tickets are free but pre-booking is recommended from Monday 15 October.
