IT’S A TRAGEDY is an immersive performance that offers the visitor an intimate encounter with mythology, starting at the premise of a classical tragedy. Ninety meticulously choreographed minutes lead through lonesome hotel corridors and tangled sheets toward the inevitable. With full discretion and respectful support, the visitor is invited to step into the position of the tragic hero, guided by the choir and a flickering star.
