The Bizarre Bazaar

Interactive Event // Director // Swamp Motel // VERIZON MEDIA // 2019

To celebrate Halloween, Verizon Media commissioned Swamp Motel to create Madame Mesmer’s Bizarre Bazaar – a mysterious 19th Century American circus that bursts into being for one night only. Audiences were entranced with an immersive backstage area, brimming with secrets and a hedonistic dance floor – ghosts, jugglers, a magician, psychic, contortionist and Ringmistress Madame Mesmer herself came together alongside a concoction of custom cocktails and mouth watering carnival fare to the grooves of a clown brass band.

Deep in the recesses of the circus were a clutch of haunting experiences, each one built around a core ethos of some of Verizon’s best-loved brands.
