Through my exploration of a novel approach to interactive music theater experiences, my intention is to engage audiences in thrilling ways, igniting within them a fresh perspective on the world and cultivating a profound appreciation for the boundless possibilities that arise when we dare to challenge the status quo. These thought-provoking experiences aim to confront pressing issues and establish a connection with the audience, sparking meaningful dialogue. "Wen Liu, Founder & Artistic Director"

Our current work-in-progress production: 


A Participatory XR Music Theater, infusing satire with an immersive dining experience.

A thought-provoking journey where the effects of climate change and our increasingly self-obsessed society collide, exploring the illusions we create for ourselves in the pursuit of happiness.

A Participatory XR Music Theater, infusing satire with an immersive dining experience.

The objective of this project is to explore a new approach to Music Theater production that leans toward the realm of performance art. This approach aims to facilitate a more immersive experience for the audience by allowing them to actively engage with the performance. This includes opportunities for the audience to become deeply involved in the scene, break the traditional barrier between performers and spectators (often referred to as the "fourth wall"), and assume the role of storytellers within the Music Theater narrative.
