New live entertainment experience SOMNAI invites you to explore the realm of lucid dreaming to make you more in waking life

The 90-minute show takes place in a 20,000 square feet warehouse over two floors in a central London location

SOMNAI is dotdotdot’s first experience, a new London-based entertainment company that mixes live performance, multi-sensory elements and immersive technologies

SOMNAI will make your dreams come true – all you have to do is SLEEP™.

Discover SOMNAI, London’s new immersive experience that invites you to explore the realm of lucid dreaming to master your subconscious mind.

Control your dreams and learn to be more in your waking life: all-powerful, dripping with wealth, adored by the masses… but who is really in charge?

The show promises to offer a twist on the traditional live experience and is brought to you by dotdotdot, a company specialising in mixing live performance, multi-sensory elements and immersive technologies.

The story behind SOMNAI is a thought-provoking parable for our modern times – in a society where individuals are focused on wanting to be more, SOMNAI will place your humanity in the hands of an all-powerful AI with good intentions but unusual methods.

The 90-minute immersive experience is spread over the two floors of a 20,000-square old printing plant in Clerkenwell, London.
It will take you on a journey deep into your psyche and invite you to make choices that will reveal what you really want and who you really are.

No-one’s path will be the same, but whatever happens, SOMNAI will make sure you leave enlightened.

It doesn’t end there – choose from a selection of bespoke cocktails in the bar which is illuminated by projection technologies and a set that morphs and changes as you enjoy your drinks.

Connie Harrison, Creative Director at dotdotdot says ‘SOMNAI is a fantastical dream-themed story and world that plays with the real and the virtual.

Using immersive technologies in disruptive ways such as collective VR scenes – when VR is so often a solitary experience – layered with other physical elements like a touch, a scent or a gentle breeze.

In SOMNAI, we’ve focused entirely on how people feel, keeping the audience in the moment and allowing them to forget about the outside world.

We don’t want to give too much away, but SOMNAI is as uplifting and magical as it is dark and sinister… because not all dreams are sweet.’

SOMNAI premieres on 1st March 2018 in Clerkenwell, London. Find out more and buy tickets at
