The Ascent by Yehuda Duyaens is a live action participatory theatrical ride experience that involves mind control and levitation.
Participants are hooked onto a harness and equipped with a technology that’s connected to the mind and feeds off of brainwaves. In order to be hoisted into the air, the subjects must maintain concentration similar to meditators. Once they reach the top, a sound and light show celebrates their success, however, there’s some challenges along the way.
As people attempt to ascend with concentration, a deliberate audio and visual effect stimulation comes into effect in an attempt to distract them. The Ascent is a test to see how well you are able to concentrate under extreme circumstances.
