Developed with Cleveland CORE Ensemble

Show Description:

Unlike anything you’ve ever seen, this immersive performance empowers guests to curate their own experience. Inside this performance exhibit which some describe as a theatrical museum or an artistic haunted house, guests explore a mythical world where origami comes to life―moths journey to a star, and a candleflame opens a magical doorway. Back by popular demand!

Guests are seated in 25-minute increments. The performance cycles 2.5 times per night and is 70 minutes in its entirety. Guests may stay as long or short as they’d like.
