Ahead of the world premiere of 'WHIST' at the Colyer-Fergusson Hall at The Gulbenkian, Canterbury (12 – 13 April), choreography company AΦE announces a special trial date of its newest dance and Virtual Reality production at the V&A Sculpture Gallery on Saturday 18th February.
Inspired by Sigmund Freud’s dream theory, WHIST invites audiences on a journey into the unconscious mind, where instincts will be the guide through a narrative of surreal dreams and fears.
Combining Physical Theatre and Mixed Reality Technology, the production bring the magic of theatre together with the type of special effects only possible in the world of film. WHIST incorporates 360˚ interactive film, soundscapes and an architectural art installation to create an environment that blurs all boundaries – between consciousness and unconsciousness, reality and fiction, the physical and the virtual.
Immersed in a world of unfolding dreams, the viewer chooses his or her own path, creating a truly unique narrative dependent on choice – their personal decisions made through the course of the mesmerising experience.
