Introducing LIMINA - Bristol's new Virtual Reality Theatre on Harbourside
Something very exciting is going on downstairs at Watershed's unit 5: the Limina Immersive team have opened the UK's first venue totally dedicated to creative VR. Join us to hear more about it.
Studio Residents Limina new Creative VR Theatre is open six nights a week and all day at weekends. They will will be piloting the Theatre for three months, with support from Watershed. The Limina team are dedicated to offering VR for audiences as a shared activity that forms part of a day or evening out, in a calm & nurturing environment. Join Limina's Emma, Freya and Catherine as they run through their first programme and talk about the guiding principles that underpin this new venture.
Limina Immersive is a leading UK-based immersive media curation, events and consultancy company. Their approach is based on an ongoing process of extensive audience research and testing, working with leading universities and cultural venues. They also work closely with some of the world’s most talented VR producers, giving them access to the most pioneering and meaningful content out there. Through their unique VR theatre format and expert curation, they get to the heart of what immersive media really means in context, working back from an audience perspective.
This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
