Terror From Inside the 3rd Dimension!

Presented by The Theatre Centre

Terror from Inside the 3rd Dimension! is an online show using multiple conferencing platforms, integrating augmented and virtual reality. Wander across online platforms interacting with digital avatars played by live performers in a time-limited adventure story/escape room video game.

“The story evolved as we developed the structure and is now being finalized. The intention in building the show was initially to research online performance, which then developed into an examination of digital interactivity with audiences and became an interrogation into the experience of being both connected & disconnected online. The present plan is to use Zoom, Mozilla Hubs, Kumospace & Gathertown in a seamless way, the audience moving through each of the various modes of those platforms, with a threading dynamic narrative that is site-specific to each digital space, connected by a larger narrative that unites all the spaces.” –HRH Anand Rajaram
