Submersive Productions and In the Stacks Performing Arts Series

Submersive Productions takes over the George Peabody Library for three consecutive evenings, exploring questions like: What is collected here? Who was given the power to choose these materials? Are there forgotten or lesser-known stories hidden here? What is left out? Come and consider these questions during an immersive, "choose your own adventure" style show, See Also.

Following threads (both figurative and literal) around the George Peabody Library, participants will encounter visual art, soundscapes, and performers portraying character composites based on historical women and non-binary individuals from the collections of the Johns Hopkins University Sheridan Libraries and University Museums. The performance will culminate in the world premiere of a work by contemporary female composer Briay Conditt.

► LISTEN to a Maryland Humanities podcast about See Also, featuring Ursula Marcum, co-artistic director at Submersive Productions.

  • Performances will occur at 6pm, 7pm, and 8pm and will last approximately 45 minutes.
  • Entry will be limited to 100 audience members per performance.
  • No tickets required
  • Entry is free with a $20 suggested donation
  • To learn more visit In the Stacks on Facebook

Presented by In the Stacks, the John Hopkins University Sheridan Libraries, and Submersive Productions. 

Generous support provided by Mayor Jack Young and the Baltimore Office of Promotion and The Arts, PNC Bank, and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, under the auspices of the Sheridan Libraries.
