FRINGE REVIEW: HOUSE OF MIRRORS, GARDEN OF UNEARTHLY DELIGHTS, 2019

Vanity or Insanity…?

House of Mirrors by Christian Wagstaff and Keith Courtney is not your typical ‘Fun House’ experience.

This whacky, weird and perplexing mirror maze will have you quickly looking for the way out rather than stopping to enjoy the scenery (you)!

As much as it’s possible to enjoy the experience, you may also feel like your exit strategy grows further and further away.

At times during the House of Mirrors you might looked longingly at others for clues about where you are and what the f**k is going on. However, the staff working in the maze are just as lost as everyone else!

After 20 minutes or so walking through the maze (no longer knowing which way was up, down, around or back again) you might manage to catch the reflection of the exit in one of the mirrors and then question if it’s just an image of a reflection of a mirror of the door!

After finally escaping the vortex, there’s a sense of satisfaction and the feeling that it’s a pretty enjoyable and bizarre expedition.

Warning: I would advise against embarking upon The House of Mirrors after to too many wines as you may find it extremely difficult to navigate your way out (and around) – unless of course that sounds like a challenge you’d like to take on!

House of Mirrors intrigues, delights and demands your attention. 3.5/5 stars.

I would recommend that all who visit The Garden of Unearthly Delights this year try out this mind maze and put themselves toward the physical and psychological challenge!

Just try not to get lost in your own reflection… literally!
