VR Theatre: An expensive, bulky gimmick or a radical world building experience? What role should VR play in the future of Scottish Theatre?
This event invites the Scottish theatre and digital arts communities to have an open discussion about what we want from the fusion of VR and Theatre.
This event is for
Theatre creatives, programmers, venue staff, producers
Digital creatives, developers, producers
Those with no experience of VR and those with lots
Identify key questions we have about VR Theatre, from ‘What is VR Theatre?’ to ‘What are future digital distribution models?’ to ‘What role could mocap play?’
Split into breakout rooms for more focussed conversations; each room tackling a different question.
Share highlights back with the whole group
The event is part of Produced Moon’s project Developing a VR Toolkit for Theatre. It follows on from a series of creative labs exploring the potential of VR theatre to disrupt the boundaries between physical and digital realities and to be radically accessible. The event will be hosted by Mel and Leo from Produced Moon, and lab participants Libby Odai, Lewis Sherlock and Hannah Wright.
