2017: An introduction to Virtual Reality Arts VR cinema tour

;

In order to introduce audience members to virtual reality as an art form, Limina took our VR sessions format on tour to arts & culture venues across the UK.  The VR Theatre format allowed audiences in small groups to experience several VR arts experiences collectively, followed by a post-show Q&A with the curator.  We took audiences on a journey through the artworks of famous painters and offered them a glimpse into the experiences of Caribbean soldiers in WWI. Additional elements were often incorporated to enrich the audience’s experience, for instance, a dance prologue projected into the space and a post-VR behind the scenes film. Upmost attention was paid to audience duty of care throughout, for instance  the VR theatre taking place in a separated private space (no VR in lobbies!), a warm welcome briefing and plus a clear range of ground rules – eg. no photography.  We also delivered talks throughout the day, exploring VR’s current and future capabilities as an art form. 

Venues for the tour included Dundee Rep Theatre, Warwick Arts Centre, Cambridge University, HOME in Manchester and more.
