"EXI(S)T" is a VR and immersive theater experience premiering November 2019 in partnership with Town Stages of 221 West Broadway, New York. This exile experience attempts to demonstrates the struggle and strife of migrants to simply exist in society.
We have taken real stories of people once living in Mexico, Iraq, Nicaragua, Somalia, Palestine, Venezuela, Afghanistan, Brazil, Albania, Turkey, Kurdistan, and Syria. They tell you their journey of searching for home and peace.
These stories have been recorded with a 3D volumetric camera, and rendered into a 400,000-particle special effect. The experience is full room-scale virtual reality and immersive theater. Content was captured, developed and choreographed during the summer of 2019.
You can make a difference. Proceeds go towards hiring migrants because healthy work-lives provide purpose, value and community.
