What is immersive theater?

Forget the seat. Forget the stage.

While there are many schools of thought on the subject, Bricolage defines immersive theater as a theatrical event that places audience members at the center of the experience. For us, immersive theater fundamentally alters the traditional audience-performance relationship by giving you more agency. Instead of sitting in a seat watching a story unfold on a stage, you are moving through an interactive environment, engaging in the story as it unfolds around you.

What can I expect at Bricolage’s immersive productions?

It’s usually best to enter with no expectations. Ok, so that’s not the answer you were looking for, but it’s true! Each of our immersive productions is drastically different from the next. You may be in a group of several people exploring city buildings and curious alleyways in an urban adventure like OjO: The Next Generation of Travel, or you may be completely alone on an individual journey of the senses, like in our Immersive Encounters.
