Company History


Submersive Productions is a collaborative artworks company that creates original, site-specific immersive works where artists and audiences engage together at the intersection of histories, mythologies and the immediate experience.

Based in Baltimore, we devise works that make the audience essential to the journey of the narrative.

We work with teams of artists and performers to make worlds that engage the senses and unfold stories, both familiar and forgotten.

About the Piece


Each character in the production is inspired by multiple women and non-binary individuals, most of which are represented in the collections and history of the Sheridan Libraries at Johns Hopkins University. These composite characters are the result of equal parts research and imagination-- they come from many different time periods, and they are both real and imagined. Below is a list of these characters followed by the real individuals that inspired them.

Listen to women and non-binary people. 
​Everything is connected.
