Into the Unknown is a life-size, immersive, personal experience that expresses these beliefs and leaves participants thinking about the decisions that accompany life. We venture out into the unknown every day, not knowing what awaits, but with goals in mind. Yet, distractions abound in the world around us, confusing us, and make it difficult to know what to pay attention to and how to interpret the world around us.

After all, you can not be given a timeline detailing the events of your life – you must experience, and craft, your story firsthand.
