The Virtual Light of Day - A series of virtual reality films by Kevin Kerr. A free Vancouver Playhouse lobby installation.
Complementing the stage work The Full Light of Day, company Core Artist Kevin Kerr has created a collection of short films shot in 360° Virtual Reality collectively referred to as The Virtual Light of Day. These three independent Virtual Reality experiences capture narratives developed by Kevin during dramaturgy for The Full Light of Day and revolve around some of the central themes of the play. Each captures a unique perspective from one of the characters from the stage play, at times witnessing, at times inhabiting their experience.
The three films are approximately six minutes in length each, and viewers will be guided through their experience and provided with Oculus Go Headsets and headphones to wear. These works are experiments and can be viewed independently of the theatre piece, but also pair well with the full stage play, providing a wonderful, thought-provoking enhancement.
From January 4 to 12, these films will be available to experience in the lobby, showing every 10 minutes during open hours. You can pre-reserve a spot or just walk up and wait for a turn. You do not need a ticket to the stage performance to see these films.
Friday, January 4 and Saturday, January 5 – 3:00pm – 7:00pm
Monday, January 7 to Friday, January 11 – 5:00pm – 7:30pm
Saturday, January 12 – 12:00pm – 2:00pm and 5:30pm – 7:30pm
A limited number of pre-reserved time slots for these experiences will be available online beginning January 2, 2019, by visiting www.electriccompanytheatre.com. Walk-ups welcome.
