Last year, amidst the more than seventeen hours (!) of new content we produced, there were two lesser-seen gems. Altar Ego and Project P.S. were created for an installation at the Peale Center called The Institute of Visionary History and the Archives of the Deep Now. The lucky few who attended were treated to an intense trip to another place and time.
This July and August, we are excited to bring back The Institute to give you one more chance to experience these two unique episodes. We just concluded our highly lauded remount of Altar Ego, after fleshing it out into for a more complete, standalone experience. We are now doing the same with Project P.S., which will run in mid-August. Plan to spend about an hour at The Peale and to experience something intimate and memorable. With an audience of no more than five people at a time, the shows are sure to sell out so make your plans now! Tickets are now available! See Artful.ly for all show dates and times.
"Best of Baltimore
One-of-a-kind Theater Company"
"...an exciting example of how historic spaces can be animated and made accessible through artistic experiences."
"Best Of Baltimore
Best Theatrical Experience"
“Submersive Productions has continued their dominance in creating unique immersive experiences. And using women of color to tell these unique experiences was genius.”
“I was blown away by the quality of the work.”
“A fully immersive experience that has something to dazzle all the senses.”
“...smart design decision after smart design decision...a one-hour master class in immersive theatre.”
"Lovers of the new, the weird and the wonderful, take note: everything you’re looking for is in Baltimore, at Submersive Productions’ fantastical new piece, H.T. Darling’s Incredible Musaeum"
“An experience that defies description in the most imaginatively miraculous way possible.”
"Museums spend years acquiring the sort of artifacts Submersive Productions assembled for this show. It’s one thing to stage a show in a real museum – quite another to flesh out an empty one."
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.
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.
