The Indigo Room is an immersive ritualistic theater and installation work by Timothy White Eagle and The Violet Triangle. The artists explore the universal myth of a hero being swallowed alive and then returned by taking a deep collective journey through grief and connection toward new mythologies.
Juxtaposing the profane with the sacred, this experiential work transforms the building, moving from a vibrant chaotic carnival, across guarded thresholds and into the belly of the whale, hallowed theatrical space. Elemental and meditative, with a touch of divine magic, audiences are invited into new considerations and possibilities as we emerge from isolation.
