How can a performance be transferred into virtual reality, and what happens when a person encounters performers there?
As partner of Zürcher Theater Spektakel, Roehrs & Boetsch will present WHITEOUT, the world’s first virtual reality group exhibition on contemporary performance art. The collective New Scenario have curated an exhibition with artists Maria Hassabi, Christian Falsnaes, and Va-Bene Elikem Fiatsi that allows a unique and immersive experience with performance art in virtual space.
Originally developed for the digital extension of the NRW-Forum and to premiere on 18 July 2019 in Düsseldorf, WHITEOUT will be presented in a slightly adjusted room set-up.
WHITEOUT is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the MARTA project, a joint project between Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences HSD, Tennagels, Lavalabs, and NRW-Forum Düsseldorf.
