From the light of the fire, our dancing shadows

Layered Realities Weekend 5G Showcase


Please note: This event took place in March 2018

A poetic virtual reality dance experience from Kaleider, conceived and directed by Seth Honnor with Andy Wood and All Seeing Eye

Sun 18 March - 11:40 Snow update

All of the 5G events will take place as planned today (apart from the 12:00 From the light of the fire and the 22:00 Millennium Constellations). We've moved the Box Office into the foyer of We The Curious and Millennium Square is gritted. Wrap up warm!

Our Dancing Shadows explores two sides of the same VR experience, one in the VR experience and the other watching on. Are you a Witness or a Player? Choose to be a Witness and listen through your own headphones, or take to the stage as a Player, wearing a VR headset to immerse yourself in a lyrical interplay between light and shadow.

Our Dancing Shadows uses the experimental 5G network to enable different people to collaborate in the same virtual world at once, outdoors and in a public space. You do not need to have experienced VR before in order to be a Player and the VR environment that you will find yourself in is not a competitive game environment. If you choose to be a Player in the VR experience you will find yourself guided through a gentle, poetic VR world.
