The Tension Experience has ascended

Immersive theater is truly starting to breach the mainstream consciousness

The Tension Experience announced today that they will be teaming with AGBO, to develop new immersive experiences, destinations and brand partnerships.  In this new joint venture, AGBO will be joining as producers of the groundbreaking show and support the development and expansion of Tension to more cities.

The first planned project is the creation of a permanent destination in Las Vegas, in tandem with a casino partner, which will become an epicenter for the next evolution in interactive entertainment. This high-end interactive entertainment and nightlife experience will be a fully realized living and breathing world ready to react to all of the audience’s individual choices and decisions and will also incorporate new and cutting-edge technology that will be in play before, during and after you step through their doors.

“We’re always searching for new and innovative ways to interpret narrative,” said Anthony and Joe Russo. “We’re beyond impressed by the wholly immersive experience that Tension has brought to all of their shows, and we look forward to helping them expand their reach.”

For nearly three years, director Darren Lynn Bousman, writer Clint Sears and producer Gordon Bijelonic have changed the landscape of immersive storytelling.  Their fans have become the stars of their own real-life, cinema-quality thrillers that have taken place all over the country, incorporated nearly hundreds of actors and have been punctuated by critically acclaimed interactive theatrical events that give complete control to the participants themselves.

Darren Lynn Bousman (SAW II, III and IV) has dedicated the last few years of his life to the immersive medium, “As a consumer, I became passive… I sit back and I watch while things happen around me. I wanted to feel more engaged. I needed something to wake me up and inspire me. Immersive theater did that. It forces the audience to be active. We want to create environments where the audiences are the stars… Their action unlocks the narrative.”

“When we embarked on this journey our goal was to change and disrupt the traditional storytelling format,” said producer Gordon Bijelonic.  “We wanted to give our audiences a true visceral experience incorporating all five Human Senses.”

“This is the most fulfilling creative endeavor we could possibly be involved with. It’s unparalleled in its scope and possibilities,’ stated writer Clint Sears.  “The team feels that their experience along with the unparalleled creative force of AGBO will help create the most exciting immersive collaboration in the world.”
