A squad of seven characters, confused by the philosophy of Albert Camus took over the Gateway to the Negev Visitors Center in the Old City of Be’er Sheva. They lured their visitors into participating in a unique and one time only existentialist
The Outsider Room.
They guided the audience through many spaces, participants were submitted to a series of personality tests, qualification checks, riddles and quizzical games in an exhilarating amusement park that awakens all senses and desires, in order to become one of seven lucky individuals who were released from the escape room and received an existential grand prize.
The show examines the influence of the herd and the wisdom of the masses, free will of the individual in society and the key roles in the creation of a new community. The Outsider escape room sets the reality of our lives and the degree of our involvement in what is happening around us across that of existentialism and brings the experience of the escape room to the level of absurdity.
Whether you have never read Albert Camus’ philosophy, or whether you pretend you have read it to try to have more sex, The Outsider Room by Clipa and Fruit for the Apocalypse is a one-time adventure you will not easily forget.
The Outsider Room is the first collaboration of the successful British group Fruit for the Apocalypse and the Clipa Theater.
