“TOGETHER” is a VR experience about the power of human connection. The piece fuses dance and technology, putting the viewer in the middle of an emotional narrative about breaking down barriers and bringing people closer.

The experience was created in collaboration with Palme d'Or winning director Terrence Malick, Academy Award nominated cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto and movement artists Jon Boogz and Lil Buck along with Facebook's creative studio, The Factory.

VR challenged Malick and Prieto to rethink the traditional narrative structure and deliver a piece that uses VR to tell a timeless story about human connection.
