About Odd Man Out

A PITCHBLACK Experience

If you are into transportive, breath-taking experiences, this is the event for you. Odd Man Out is an immersive sensorial experience that ignites your senses and your imagination.

You will take a flight like no other – in complete darkness. You arrive at our airport and wait at the PITCHBLACK Airlines lounge and gate where we prepare you for the journey. We guide you to your seat in a pitch-black cabin. Once on the flight, you will experience a story through sound, smell, taste and touch. You will even feel weather happening inside the room. But everything in complete darkness. Once you exit, we invite you to stay and take in the beauty, life and hope of your new destination.

The PITCHBLACK THEATER technique was developed in Argentina by blind and sighted artists, and it has expanded throughout the world. Alberto, the protagonist, is blind, and the audience experiences his life through the “blind” eyes of his character. Our expert team of technicians will take you on a journey beyond your wildest imagination, challenging your limits and awakening your senses. What you see when you can’t use your eyes – that’s the excitement of ODD MAN OUT.

A Story About Love and Fears left behind

PITCHBLACK Airlines invites you to take a journey you won’t forget. Alongside Alberto, a blind Argentine musician, we will experience the return flight to his country after having lived in New York for the past 40 years. We will travel through the memories of his life: childhood in his family home, adolescence, the first love that would shape his life, the darkest moments of Argentine history, his exile in the United States, his career as an artist, and the constant search for freedom between the cities of Buenos Aires and New York.

Forty percent of the staff and creative team are or blind and low-vision individuals.  Our shows also use extensive sustainability practices, by minimally building or creating sets, lights and costumes in our productions
