Dialogue in the Dark – An Eye Opening Experience
Dark! The word has been associated with color, absence of light and with thing eerie. But to many, it is the way they see the world. Do we really know what it is to be in dark? Not the dark we think of when we do not have sufficient information about a subject, the REAL Darkness. It will be an interesting question to answer since darkness in real is never experienced by many of us, not even in the night. Pitch darkness has literally existed only in thrillers for me. This realization dawned on me when I visited “Dialogue in the Dark” in Express Avenue Mall, Royapettah, Chennai. It is located on the other end of Food Court. Wondering what is “Dialogue in the Dark”?
Dialogue in the Dark is an experience as what is being in total darkness navigating and performing things that we do in normal life. We use eyesight as the most important tool to understand things around us what if it is switched off TOTALLY? If you are claustrophobic, it may sound life threatening. I am one and it did to me. But then, the fact that I completed the 1.30 hrs experience in totally pitch darkness is a lifetime achievement and a beautiful learning on how a visually challenged person lives his life not out of choice like us here but of compulsion.
We do not want to go into details because that might take the fun out of it. We want to assure you the experience is a well guided one with interesting play. Food is served and I do not want to use the word “restaurant” because it is more focused on the way you eat it than the food itself.
We strongly recommend everyone to have this experience and here are the details given to us by the management team for you.
