This is a virtual reality experience for two audience members at a time. A collaboration between two excellent companies, dreamthinkspeak and Access All Areas, it is a work in development that considers what personal connection really means in a digital world. Live performance from disabled artists is melded with virtual and mixed reality to ask whether technology is a boon or if it makes us lose our sense of reality. Check it out and maybe also check out Spirit, a collaboration between New Perspectives’ Jack McNamara and Thibault Delferiere, a highly acclaimed Belgian artist whose mix of painting, performance and sound is used here to explore the human spirit.

Blending intimate live performance by learning disabled artists with virtual and mixed reality, unReal City explores what personal connection means in a world that is increasingly digital. The performance you will see is the experimental first phase of a work-in-progress collaboration between two of the UK’s leading performing arts companies.
