The theatre features one of the most beautifully designed speakeasy cocktail bars Belgrade has to offer that hosts the most prominent jazz musicians Belgrade has to offer.
What Is An Immersive Theatre Experience?
Immersive theater involves the audience in the play as it progresses. Instead of a traditional stage, the audience is welcome to explore the massive 2-floor setup of In His Mind, featuring unique design pieces inspired by the Victorian era and the steampunk genre.
The story follows Jack The Ripper, the notorious serial killer in his childhood and explores the depths of the human psyche that lead someone to commit such heinous acts towards another human being.

The script is laid down in a way that no visit to In His Mind will ever be the same, as you are free to explore different scenes while others are playing out elsewhere.
