The Inferno Project

We go by a secret path along the rim
of the dark city, between the wall and the torments.
My Master leads me and I follow him.

The first Maelstrom Collaborative Arts’ LongForm Project, The Inferno Project is an immersive, explorable experience that adapts Dante Alighieri’s classic epic poem for an utterly unique interdisciplinary performance. Like a living museum, the nine circles of hell are evoked by a mix of artistic disciplines and media exploring modern day interpretations of sin, redemption, and spiritual progress.
