About the Show

"Survival can be dicey. Maximize your chances with Revelations Consulting."

Based on interviews with real disaster “preppers,” Revelations begins seemingly as an at-home escape room kit (which have become mega-popular over the pandemic). But after starting from home over walkie talkies, it soon grows into a live interactive game and culminates in a profound communal event. The project takes participants on a journey from isolation to connection, zooming out from the individual to a neighbourhood and eventually to the cross section of a city—ultimately redefining the idea of The End of the World.

Apocalypse: noun; from the Greek “ἀποκάλυψις”, meaning “revelation.”
