The Sandman

The Sandman invites you to step into the memories of troubled young man Nathaniel, haunted since childhood by a sinister figure he calls 'the sandman'. Guided by Nathaniel's voice, follow him as he leads you through the house he once knew as a boy, and up the stairs to a room filled with his half-forgotten childhood memories - where he is finally compelled to look the past in the eye.

The Sandman is based on E. T. A. Hoffmann's eerie 1816 tale of the same name, which is discussed throughout Freud's essay 'The Uncanny', and credited with evoking 'a quite unparalleled atmosphere of uncanniness'.

Staged as an audio trail around the Freud family home, and culminating in an immersive room, The Sandman blends together fact and fiction to invite you to explore the house through the eyes of a young boy, encountering masks, mirrors, dolls, doubles, and other unsettling things along the way
