      Whist blends art installation, 360° interactive film, and physical theatre to experiment with a new form of storytelling inspired by the emergence of Virtual Reality (VR) technology.

      A room holds beautifully designed objects, but it is only with a VR headset, the hidden, collateral sto-ries of a strange family are unveiled.

      Inspired by Freud’s case studies, it explores “un-consciousness” on two levels:

      1. Multiple narratives about unconsciousness told through physical theatre and film; and

      2. the audiences’ own unconscious decision-making process captured through gaze-based navigation made possible in VR technology.
