The Denver Immersive Summit And The DCPA Off-Center Present THE DENVER IMMERSIVE RETROSPECTACLE

The Denver Immersive Summit And The DCPA Off-Center Present THE DENVER IMMERSIVE RETROSPECTACLE

Come celebrate the past, present and future of Colorado's immersive art and entertainment scene at the Denver Immersive Retrospectacle!



The Denver Immersive Summit and the DCPA Off-Center present The Denver Immersive Retrospectacle, Thursday, August 15, 7-9 pm (Doors at 6 and cash bar reception at 9).



From Meow Wolf's new building popping up above I-25 to a growing escape room scene and a thriving interactive theater and dance community, Denver is the hot home for immersive art and entertainment.



"Immersive" is the catch-all term for the burgeoning new industry that blends traditional art and entertainment styles with more contemporary experience-based approaches. In recent years, the immersive scene has grown from a buzzword to a $4.5 billion industry.


The Denver Immersive Retrospectacle follows up on last year's sold-out Denver Immersive Summit with a one-night celebration of the past, present and future of immersive art and entertainment in the region. The event also gives makers, producers, performers and patrons a chance to mingle and network during pre-event activities and a post-event mixer.



The evening features a keynote by Jaako Stenros, Ph.D, a Finnish game researcher and scholar who specializes in playfulness through a variety of game types. His talk will center on Nordic live action role-playing (LARP), which pushes the boundaries of immersive form and content through a variety of themes, structures, and social experiences--from the Cold War to orcs and elves, from life on a hippie communes to interstellar intrigue aboard a spaceship.



The Retrospectacle will also showcase a year-in-review of major local immersive productions and accomplishments in the areas of theatre and dance, art and installations, attractions and events, and everything in between. As a special bonus, attendees will receive a copy of the Denver Immersive Summit Yearbook, a handy who's who of regional immersive art and entertainment creators and producers.



If you've helped create a recent immersive piece, have one in the works, or are curious what immersive is all about, don't miss this must-attend event! Get tickets early to reserve your spot.
