'Whist' MR Theatre
VICE, The Creators Project Says:
“WHIST is a boundary breaking piece, future facing in its use of the medium of VR
to develop a new kind of narrative. A truly beautiful, compelling and important work.”
Creative Review Says:
"Powerful, refreshing, exciting. WHIST opens up questions
about the fhuture of interactive performance experiences."
Satu Viljanen (Partner) Says:
“Like aweful student performance, if it wasn’t done in VR no-one would pay to see it”
“You can tell that the technical aspect dominates the end result, I was forgiving about
the content as a result. I enjoyed moments where the choice of camera position located
the viewer/participant in impossible space. E.g. hovering above a dining table where
you look down and only see the tableware not your own body. That’s pretty cool.
They said depending where you looked resulted in a different series of experiences
we’re certain they lied, both me and Satu had identical set of scenes. They must have
max four variations of experience available”
