Immersive Theater and VR Spaces

Mar 15, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

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 worlds: theater and VR. The new programme intends to merge aesthetic developments from various disciplines and to render them experienceable for the audience.
The panel will present as a world premier the experience "Rhizomat VR."
