Our Shared Values Statement and Anti-Racism / Anti-Oppression Policy has recently been made public. It is meant to work in conjunction with out Safe and Supported Spaces Policy as a living document that informs all of our work. Our Collective contains roughly 50 artists, including two Co-artistic Directors and nine Artistic Associates who make all the major decisions for the company. We make decisions via consensus — basically talking things through to reach unanimous agreement rather than voting. The policy we created is part narrative and part quantitative. (Numbers without narrative lack humanity, narrative without numbers lacks measurable accountability.) It tells the story of where we’ve been and where we are going.
The policy is our pledge to each other as collaborators committed to creating kind of world we want to live, work, and love in. Developing this document and sharing it with the public was an important step, but it is just one in an ongoing journey. The Work implied in the document needs to be alive in all we do in order for it to stay relevant. We will follow up with opportunities for you to join this discussion as our journey together continues.
Thanks to all of you who joined us in one of the most beautiful libraries in the world in February of 2020! “See Also” encouraged audience members to follow threads (both figurative and literal) around the George Peabody Library in a choose-your-own-adventure style, where they encountered visual art, soundscapes, and performers portraying character composites based on historical women and non-binary individuals from the collections of the Johns Hopkins Sheridan Libraries and University Museums. The performance culminated in the world premiere of a work by contemporary female composer Briay Conditt.
"See Also" was a part of the “In the Stacks” series at the George Peabody Library. To stay up to date, follow us on FB and other social media (those links on the top right of this page!) for the latest.
We’re committed to making absolutely original and wildly creative work here in Baltimore and we continue to grow. But creating new, experience-based work from scratch requires a great deal of time and money. If you want to support the kind of art we make, and the magnificently talented artists who collaborate with us, please consider joining our new Submersive Visionary Society! Whether you choose to donate a one-time annual gift or break it into monthly payments, you will have the opportunity to peek into our process and get more involved in all kinds of ways. You will also be the first to know when we have a new experience to share. You can find all of the details regarding different giving levels on our membership page. Every donation, no matter how large or small, keeps us moving forward. Thank you!

"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."
We’re taking this time to think, dream and plan. We can tell you that our next project has a decidedly neo-futuristic flavor, and we’re excited to share it with you as soon as we are able. We’ll keep you posted!
The Peale Center has graciously hosted and partnered with us for over two years. In September of 2019, they began renovations on their building and a new chapter in their long history. The renovation will take about a year, and we’re looking forward to seeing it when it is complete. Until then, the you can find out what the Peale is up to here.
