In many respects, the black hole interior is an uncharted territory. General relativity points to its

existence while quantum theory is still undecided. In this work, we take a figurative and literal

step towards the interior. Underlying this is the T\overline{T} deformation which was argued to be dual

to moving the boundary to a finite radius in the bulk. By a sequence of related deformations

on a boundary theory admitting a dual bulk description with black holes, we first move the

boundary to the horizon and then into the interior. We provide evidence for this by matching

the energy on either side of the duality in cases where the interior energy is computable and

discuss work in progress allowing one to compute interior correlation functions purely from

the boundary.
