Your daughter is missing. You are the only one who has not given up the search.

You hear voices. They guide you. They haunt you. Will you surrender to them? Or will you shine? Hippana Theatre invites you to the distant recesses of the mind to meet the stranger inside you in this immersive psychological thriller that blurs the senses and tricks the mind into feeling what might not be there.

Real-life couple Olivier Leclair and Tiia-Mari Makinen use masks and physical theatre in a production which guarantees to tickle the scary bones in its portrayal of a family's mental fragility.

The audience is invited to wear headphones to immerse itself into a binaural sound design which may induce physical sensations.
