Immersive Concert at Ant Fest

In June 2016, Houseworld staged an immersive concert called The Sensitive Ear. Friends became captives, mashed potatoes were sculpted, and cassettes bloomed. Thanks to Ars Nova for juggling our hoard of bathtubs and bed frames.

2017...

We’ve learned so much since diving into this dream two years ago. We’re going to weave all of that knowledge and craft into our big ideas for 2017, and hope to soon invite you into our deepest ocean yet. 

Until then, dream brave dreams.
