WHIST explores the notion of unconsciousness through the dreams, fears and desires of a family, characters of which are inspired by Sigmund Freud's real case studies.
The experience merges Physical Theatre, interactive Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies and an art installation, in an environment that blurs the boundaries between consciousness and unconsciousness, reality and fiction, the physical and the virtual.
You will be immersed in a surreal world, exploring the story from different perspectives.
“WHIST is a boundary breaking piece, future facing in its use of the medium of VR to develop a new kind of narrative. A truly beautiful, compelling and important work.” – VICE, The Creators Project
