What can museums learn from immersive theater?

Inspired by the history and architecture of the Peale, the first purpose-built museum in the US, “H.T. Darling’s Incredible Musaeum” immersive theater experience by Submersive Productions offers unique insights into the history and ethics of collecting, curation, and museum practice. Join us for an evening with museum colleagues and the producers and cast members of the show for an in-depth discussion about what museums can learn from immersive theater. How can theater techniques provide new ways to enliven permanent collections and attract repeat as well as new audiences? How can the model of immersive theater help us reimagine the museum experience and engage visitors as participants in creating the museum experience?

With your ticket to this professional development session are included drinks, appetizers, and $5 off your purchase of one or more tickets to the H.T. Darling show (subject to availability).
