About Through the 4th Wall

As filmmakers and multimedia storytellers, TT4W brings fantasy worlds to life. They build an elaborate “mythology” and then create an experience centered around audiences, while simultaneously engaging them to become a part of the story. They design immersive experiences that place audience not just in the front row, but through the imaginary “4th Wall” of the performance. Through these productions, they build a unique relationship with each audience member by changing them from a “passive viewer” into an “active participant.” The goal is always to make you a part of the story.

TT4W’s most recent collaboration at the Art Center was A Dream Within A Dream: Madnessa two-month sold out run in 2016 – a surreal and romantically macabre show that explored the twisted mind of Edgar Allan Poe.
