an explorable remix of Dante’s Inferno

This October, Maelstrom Collaborative Arts is bringing together a horde of multidisciplinary artists to create an immersive, explorable vision of Dante’s classic Inferno. Under the leadership of Executive Artistic Director Jeremy Paul, an ensemble of movers, painters, directors, writers, musicians, performers, and more will be bringing this centuries-old story to life.

In “Inferno”, the nine circles of hell are evoked through the work of dozens of artists using a variety of disciplines and media to explore modern day interpretations of sin and redemption. Each level of hell will be created by a different artistic discipline, examining, interpreting, and remixing Dante’s poem through theater, dance, visual arts, music, performance art, installation design, and puppetry. Just in time for Halloween, this live multimedia performance will guide the audience through a series of installations, performances, and hellish worlds throughout the CycleWerks warehouse in Gordon Square Arts District.
