Written and directed by Dirt Empire (Bobo Do and Nicholas Rubin) with original music, sound design, and full spherical audio by Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans, The Ark is a mythic journey of intergalactic survival in the search for a new home. The 90-foot dome allows 200+ festival-goers at a time to experience 360 degree immersive theater and provides viewers with an unparalleled collective sensory experience. Proclaimed by the Observer as “the selling point of THE LAB,” The Dome is where Panorama’s synthesis of art, technology, music and design is given its ultimate expression.
