MIRO SHOT PRESENTS: CONTENT –
A MIXED REALITY CONCERT

 

7, 8, 9 and 10 June 2019
for 25 participants
Duration: ca. 30 minutes
TICKETS

 

Miro Shot is touring a live immersive VR concert that allows their audience to experience the ‘world’ of the music itself. In these shows, the audience enters a room filled with projection mapping, digital art, VR headsets, and a stage. The audience is immersed in an audiovisual journey with haptics, custom scents, and dreamscape visuals. CONTENT looks at how our notion of reality has changed and fractured as technology becomes more and more prevalent. The signs are clear that music should no longer be presented in just one medium, one sense, and in one place.

The show’s visuals are designed in part by the Miro Shot Collective, the open source part of the band that features the work of multidisciplinary creatives. Anyone can join. Miro Shot is paving the way for accessibility and innovation in live performance with immersive technology. As writer William Gibson says, “The future is already here- it’s just not very evenly distributed,” but this is all about to change.

LET’S VRHAM! TOGETHER –
A VIRTUAL LIVE CONCERT

 

13, 14 and 15 June 2019
for 30 participants
Duration: ca. 30 minutes
TICKETS

 

Three musicians, three sessions, three evenings. We invite three musicians to improvise to the visuals of two different Virtual Reality experiences without having seen them ever before.

 

Session 1: Be there when this new piece of music is evolving and mixing with the visuals of the VR artists.

 

Session 2: Not too much into experiments? Come and see the second session – same experiences, same musicians and hence a little more of a clue what is coming up.

 

Session 3: Still too fancy? Then the third session is for you – the team is already familiar with the visuals and you can enjoy a session that has already developed over the course of the evening.

 

The next evening we start all over again and are happy to have a new band as guests. The VR experiences will be the same on all three evenings, but line-up of the musicians will change.

 

You wonder what you are going to see?

MEET JULIET, MEET ROMEO –
A Virtual Theatre Experience based after William Shakespeare

 

7, 8, 9 and 10 June 2019
for 2 participants
Duration: ca. 45 minutes
Language: German
TICKETS

 

A glance, a fleeting moment was all it took to decide the fate of two lovers, their families and an entire city – the meeting of Romeo and Juliet. In what is possibly the best-known love story of all times, two worlds collide when the children of rivalling families fall in love. Juliet and Romeo meet for the first time at a masquerade ball hosted by the Capulets – an intoxicating evening which evolves into a tragic battlefield of emotions. Does the love between Romeo and Juliet thrive on its impossibility? Does their unquenchable desire for freedom lead them astray? Must their pursuit of self-determination lead to violence?

 

The artists’ group CyberRäuber creates projects that combine theatre and virtual reality (VR). The new medium offers fascinating possibilities for encounter with the great theatre classics. Following their 2017 production «The Ghost-Seer», the Berlin-based group now invites audiences at the Kunstfest Weimar to explore Shakespeare’s tragic love story in all of its many facets and from different perspectives. Equipped with VR glasses, the viewers of «Meet Juliet, Meet Romeo» assume the role of guests at a masquerade ball. Before their eyes and by simply being there, they witness the romantic encounter and the start of an irreversible tragedy.

 

Concept: Björn Lengers & Marcel Karnapke (CyberRäuber)
Director: Branko Janack
Music: Max Nübling
Visual Consulting: Cleo Niemeyer
Production: CyberRäuber, Kunstfest Weimar
Cast: Bastian Heidenreich, Julius Kuhn, Lutz Salzmann, Isabel Tetzner, Dascha Trautwein

FUGUE VR

 

12, 13 und 14 June 2019
for 5 participants aged 6 and older
Duration: ca. 30 minutes
TICKETS

 

Fugue VR is a MR experience by VR expert and member of this year’s VRHAM! jury, Michel Reilhac, that explores the vertigo intrinsic in Yoann Bourgeois’ work and challenges our relation to reality. Don your VR headset and join a spacecraft lost in the immensity of interstellar travel. The crew members choose someone who will use dance as a mean to break the curse that is holding down the craft. Your mission: accompany the dancer in the quest for salvation.

 

Director: Michel Reilhac
Choreography: Yoann Bourgeois
