Halloween Séance at The Last Tuesday Society
October 24 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Welcome to Séance. An Interactive Illusion of the Greatest Kind.
The Last Tuesday Society invites you to our Halloween Séance with Philipp Oberlohr as we join together with drink in hand to see what spirits can be channelled from the other side.
Séance is a carefully contrived reconstruction of the Victorian Séance by Vienna’s master illusionist and former theologian, Philipp Oberlohr — an immersive experience of supernatural origin combining illusion, spectacle and some profound perturbation!
Illusionist und performer Philipp Oberlohr creates experiences on the border between theatre, performance art and show. Oberlohr studied at the University of Innsbruck, Austria (BA Theology) and at the International School of Corporeal Mime in London. His works span from one-on-one installations to full-evening theatre shows. In the crossover of illusion and theatre he meaningfully engages audiences, going to the heart of their beliefs, memories and realities.
After almost a decade in London, he is now living in Vienna with his wife and son. Oberlohr has received the People’s Choice Award 2016 of London’s Vault Festival for his immersive experience Das Spiel.
The Last Tuesday Society will be presenting two shows paired with a menu of Victorian-era cocktails:
1st Show: 6:30pm – 8:00pm (Doors open 6:00pm)
2nd Show: 9.00pm – 10:30 (Doors open 8:30pm)
Join “Ex-Theologist turned Illusionist” Philipp Oberlohr in this dark spectacle with rituals, long lost mediums and the strange experience of knowing what can’t be known.

“The accuracy of his guesses: genuinely spooky.”
