Immersion is the goal for VR and theater. It is also the nucleus of both ways to tell stories. The collaboration "Immersion. Analog arts in the digital age" between Berliner Festspiele, the leading institution in Berlin to explore art and new formats, and the leading European cultural channel ARTE is dedicated to bridge the two worlds: theater and VR. The new programme intends to merge aesthetic developments from various disciplines and to render them experienceable for the audience. Thus, immersive arts also represent alternative spaces for thought and action, expanding our grasp of reality.
The panel will also present as a world premier a VR-experience based on a theater piece.
