A small group of spectators in gray coats and masks goes off on a journey into the Mind Palaces: from childhood memories through the labyrinths of growing up straight into another world. A whole storey of an apartment building in the centre of Moscow was rebuilt and refitted specially for the show. Unlike other immersive shows, the audience has no freedom of movement, and in some episodes the characters of the show treat them just like prisoners. The experience has therapeutic effect (it’s no coincidence that it all starts with a conversation with a psychologist), and at the end there is a fantastic dinner with non-coincidental assortment of foods in a non-coincidental mis-en-scene. As things stand, “Carlos Santa’s Mirror” produced by a restaurant owner is the most original and high-class immersive show there is.
