Works In Development:
MUDITA: An Immersive Sound & Light Healing Experience (Upcoming Spring 2023)
We are currently in development with La Crosse WI's Central High School Planetarium to present an immersive sound bath experience. With this event we seek to combine the deeply-immersive, fully body listening experience typical with a sound bath with lights and images that are also tied to each of your seven (7) chakras. All in the effort of examining the connection of mind and body to guide the audience member through a gentle but powerful therapeutic and restorative process.
The Life and Science of Nicola Tesla
A man who was born during a lightening storm in Croatia in 1856 became the leading voice in electrial power in America during the early 1900's. He invented alterating current, the fundamentals for what would become radio, and the first wireless machine (robot). So why are we not taught about Nicola Tesla in schools? Because of one man: Edison. Thanks to Thomas Edison and corporate greed Tesla was deleted from our history. In this developing project, we seek to use immersive theatre techniques (ala Punch Drunk & Meow Wolf) to challenge Edison's claim on electricity and set the record straight about Nicola Tesla and all that he gave this world.
