The world-renowned Rudolf Budja Gallery in Miami Beach will take guests on an exciting oceanic journey at Miami's cutting-edge Hidden Worlds Immersive Experience.
Hidden Worlds Entertainment Inc, an impactainmentTM that creates attractions with a purpose, will debut the immersive experience from May 20 through June 20, 2022.
The immersive experience features arts created by Miami-based artists and an interactive dining experience with an ocean-positive menu. Each course corresponds to an ever-changing projection environment. Hidden Worlds uses cutting-edge technology to bring its content to life, creating a hyper-realistic experience that aspires to push the boundaries of immersive entertainment.
"Miami is unlike any other city combining beautiful nature with world-class entertainment, but it is also at risk. From the loss of biodiversity to plastic pollution, the magic city faces serious environmental challenges," said Daniel Hettwer, Hidden Worlds Entertainment CEO.
"Luckily, Miami is also evolving to be a world-leading hub in tech, art, and conservation, connecting the human capital we need to solve our ecological crises. That is why Hidden Worlds is not only launching our first impactainment experience in Miami; we're making Miami our permanent home—developing impactainment from Miami for the World." Hettwer said.
Hidden Worlds Miami is a day-long event part of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science. Guests of all ages can take a 30-minute immersive voyage into the World's deepest oceans and most spectacular mangroves during the day. During the evening, guests can take part in the immersive dining experience.
Hidden Worlds collaborated on a multi-course ocean-positive cuisine with chef Scott Linquist of Como Como Miami and COYO Taco and the Exhibition Restaurant at the Rudolf Budja gallery. Each dish will be strategically served during an extended version of the day programming. Hidden Worlds has also enlisted Chatchowtv mixologist Gio Gutierrez to create unique cocktails.
"Drawing from my Cuban-American heritage, the cross-atlantic “Worldly Mojito” combines the refreshing flavors of a classic Cuban Mojito with the added benefits of the superfood known as spirulina, a bleu green algae with a ton of health benefits that even legendary boozy enthusiasts like Hemingway would appreciate." Gutierrez said.
Hidden Worlds will only offer 32 tickets each evening to ensure an intimate experience.
Hidden Worlds encourages everyone to sign up to be the first to know when tickets go on sale.
"We have an incredible team, and we have done the research; this dining experience has been meticulously designed to be unlike any other," Hettwer said. "We are confident tickets will sell out fast and highly recommend signing up for the waitlist."
The dinner event will start at $250, with a beverage pairing available for an extra fee (the price is TBA). A la carte drinks will also be available.
Hidden Worlds will invite customers to stay for the lounge experience after dinner on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The underwater wonderland will be synched to music by some of Miami's greatest DJs.
"Hidden Worlds is a groundbreaking experience that entertains, educates, and inspires people of all ages, bringing us closer to our precious ocean. Come and experience the awe of our Ocean Planet in a whole new way. It's time we all come together to explore and save our life-sustaining ocean," said Philippe Cousteau, world-famous explorer and Hidden Worlds team member.
Local Miami artists Morel Doucet and Frank Niebla have collaborated with Hidden Worlds Miami to produce art pieces for the event.
Hidden World will donate a percentage of ticket sales to its conservation partners. For more information about Hidden Worlds, visit the website.
