A motion theater piece based on the novel RAUM by Emma Donoghue

Jack lives with his ma, who has been kidnapped, in a room he has never left. Their routine daily life is characterized by minimalism, creativity and an intimate relationship with each other. Over time, however, Ma begins to tell Jack about the outside world in order to plan another escape attempt. Jack successively tries to understand the world: There are other people besides Ma and himself? Everything shown on the TV is real? Despite all his efforts, the world may not fit into his head. For Jack, it’s clear: He doesn’t want to get out. He likes it in the room.
