    Whist: Dance theatre and Virtual Reality

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2016)

    London, UK, 12 - 14 July 2016


    Esteban Fourmi, JiaXuan Hon & Aoi Nakamura



    Whist blends art installation, 360° interactive film, and physical theatre to experiment with a new form of storytelling inspired by the emergence of Virtual Reality (VR) technology.

    A room holds beautifully designed objects, but it is only with a VR headset, the hidden, collateral sto-ries of a strange family are unveiled.
    Inspired by Freud’s case studies, it explores “un-consciousness” on two levels:

    a) Multiple narratives about unconsciousness told through physical theatre and film; and
    b) the audiences’ own unconscious decision-making process captured through gaze-based navigation made possible in VR technology.
