VR meets immersive theatre

VR has been considered the ultimate empathy machine, a multi-form tool that can bring us closer to different points of view and experiences, and that can ultimately use experiences as the core principle of storytelling. VR has also been one of the few tech niches in which women have become leaders, making it fertile ground to both, exploring questions of equality as well as demonstrating what is possible in a truly egalitarian environment.

Collaborating with Talking Straight from Gorki Theatre, a performance collective specialised on immersive theatre, we want to push boundaries even further; Exploring and expanding the immersive power of VR and performance, with a team of  women only.

This meetup will bring Berlin’s XR women and Talking Straight together for the first time. If you’re interested in joining this project stay in touch. We are happily welcoming any woman excited about immersive theatre & VR. The concrete project will be designed and developed throughout autumn 2017, and integrated into the Talking Straight performances in the upcoming season.

Agenda:

6PM-8PM brainstorming

8PM-10PM food & drinks
