A New Immersive Incubator & Private Club

For 2019, Epic Immersive is launching a new immersive club and incubator, with new exclusive experiences every week, featuring a mix of internationally-renowned and local artists. And here’s what they have in common: every one of them is a woman, a queer artist, or an artist of color. Welcome to Underland.

Why an Incubator and Private Club?

Epic Immersive began with a mission to make theatre more popular by making theatrical experiences more diverse, more multidisciplinary, more embracing of technology — and more epic.
