About the show

Set near the end of WW II, this dance-heavy immersive piece ushers 6 audience members on a journey to a secret location, where they are smuggled into a world of true stories of those forced into hiding. More…

"The Hidden Ones" brings the audience face to face not only with history, but with stories of raw love and humanity as they observe two families work to overcome extraordinary circumstances in the darkest of times. The Hidden Ones shows how hope can survive turmoil, how passion can thrive in the bleakest of times, and how silence can speak deafening volumes.

Location details are provided via email after purchase. Recommended for ages 16+.

See it if Does a great job of making you understand and feel the experience of Jews in hiding during the Holocaust... for as much as an hour can.

Don't see it if You don’t like very intimate immersive experience. Prefer a show with a plot. This is more situational feelings.

See it if An experience of human warmth, connection and caring in frightening circumstances. I expected to be scared but was instead comforted.

Don't see it if You would not enjoy hiding in a small room and being part of an interpretive dance performance set to soft 1930’s ballads.

See it if You are comfortable with immersive work and want an intense, intimate dive into a troubling past.

Don't see it if Well done 1 on 1 audience-performer interactions will take you out of a story instead of bring you deeper in.

Profound, Must see, Masterful, Exquisite, Absorbing

See it if You believe history is more than the battles and the dead. History is about the people who lived through the slaughter, and suffer daily.

Don't see it if You have trouble in smaller spaces or with people touching you. It’s not a lot of touching, just guiding you through the space.
