Delivered in stunning 360° to create a unique immersive experience suitable for families and date nights alike; Mesmerica has something for everyone. The show is designed specifically to promote deep relaxation in audiences, weaving together musical soundscapes with visually hypnotic animated 3D art curated from artists around the world. 

The inspiration of award-winning musician and composer James Hood, the show was nominated for the Producers Guild of America’s first-ever Innovation award in 2020 and, in the same year, winner of the c3: Future Vision Award from the Center of Conscious Creativity, which recognizes an artist’s contribution to a better future through arts and media.

James Hood says of the show’s success: “The power of immersive music and art is like no other art form, it has the ability to create unique moods and brain states, and we’re so thrilled and honored to be able to showcase this full-dome presentation in such wonderful venues.” 

Mesmerica continues to work its magic as it opens in new cities and venues across North America. To discover the latest locations, or to learn more about the show, visit
