Live Theater in VR with the Ferryman Collective

With the unprecedented disruption in theater, creators have had to explore different avenues for immersive storytelling, using whatever technology was available to pivot during this challenging time. Ferryman Collective was created out of this environment, creating PARA, then Krampusnacht, a finalist for the PGA Innovation Award. They then joined forces with CoAct Productions to bring an in real life production of The Severance Theory: Welcome to Respite into VR, garnering awards and showing at some of the most prestigious festivals in the world. And now they world premier their fourth production, Gumball Dreams at SXSW. Join the creators as they talk about what they have learned, creating a story around an existing world, troubleshooting a one person show and the magic of the ascension.
