“THE JOURNEY LEFT ME EXHILARATED, AND EVER SO SLIGHTLY ALTERED.” – ARIEL KAMINER, THE NEW YORK TIMES
CVRTAIN is a virtual reality (VR) experience starring you. Placed center stage in a beautiful theater, the curtain parts to reveal an audience of thousands teaming with adulation. Do you freeze in the spotlight, or bow graciously? Every action produces a different reaction in your audience: thunderous applause, feet stomping, cameras flashing, maybe even booing. An entire audience’s emotions are at your virtual command, but only until the curtain closes.
Emmy award-winning experiential director Yehuda Duenyas dives into his fascination of subverting the audience/performer relationship by putting you at the center of the CVRTAIN experience. Using a VR headset, sensors, and headphones equipped for haptic feedback, Duenyas draws on the tools of gaming and immersive theater in a personalized, celebratory experience for one.
Yehuda Duenyas’ CVRTAIN is commissioned by Performance Space 122 with an implementation grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation for the Building Demand for the Performing Arts Program.
