Current, Rising

Current, Rising is a 15-minute hyper reality opera experience, combining virtual reality with a multisensory set, blending stagecraft with CG technology. It invites audiences to step into an immersive, atmospheric virtual world and experience a dream-like journey carried musically by a poem layered in song. It is a radical new way of seeing opera in which the audience are at the centre of the performance.

Winner of Best Out of Home VR Entertainment of the Year at the 2021 VR awards.
