Submersive Productions

Dive in.

Submersive Productions is a collaborative artworks company that creates original, site-specific immersive works where artists and audiences engage together at the intersection of histories, mythologies and the immediate experience.

Based in Baltimore, we devise works that make the audience essential to the journey of the narrative.

We work with teams of artists and performers to make worlds that engage the senses and unfold stories, both familiar and forgotten.

Broken Bone Bathtub returns for one special day, in a special way

Current and In-progess Works

MASS/RABBLE Wraps

MASS/RABBLE, our largest production to date, was experienced by over 500 participants during its two-week engagement this April at the Baltimore War Memorial. Many were moved in more ways than one. In between weekends, we produced the U.S. premier of SHOOT JEEZ MY GOSH, a solo Butoh performance by Berlin-based artist Yuko Kaseki. Yuko was in residency with Submersive throughout the rehearsal process for MASS/RABBLE, and we are proud to have been able to bring her back to the States.

Our future at The Peale and beyond...

The Peale Center has graciously hosted and partnered with us for over two years. In September, they will begin renovations on their building and a new chapter in their long history. The work will take about a year, during which time Submersive will appear at other locations around town. We are excited about the future of the Peale as well as our future as site-specific nomads. We will have more news of offerings this fall and beyond. Many exciting developments are afoot and we cannot wait to share what we have cooking. Stay tuned!

After six stunning episodes last Fall, we feel that our work at The Institute is not yet done. Follow The Institute on Facebook to keep up on the latest developments.
