Madame Tulalah's Magnificent Box
Discover your destiny at the touch of a button with a trip to Madame Tulalah’s Magnificent Box – a fortune-teller machine brought to life.
This interactive performance, devised by director Melinda Hetzel and performer Richard Chambers, invites you to experience a seven-minute, one-on-one fortune-telling session with part drag queen, part automaton Madame Tulalah.
Speaking through an earpiece from her custom-built box (think ‘Zoltar’ from the movie Big), the mysteriously mechanical Madame Tulalah uses not-quite-conventional methods of divination to take you on a journey into the realms of fate, future, free will and the occasional technical difficulty.
