VR @ Spegeln

Virtual Reality and immersive storytelling has invaded Nordisk Panorama in a big way also this year and we invite you to explore it all at Spegeln! Here you will find the details you need to navigate Virtual Reality at Nordisk Panorama.


VR: Kinematografi

A cinema screening of VR – with live actors. Kinematografi takes you into the mind of a woman suffering from the delusion that she is a character from an Ingmar Bergman film. A psychiatrist tries to convince you that the memories you are reliving from that cottage by the sea are not your own. You are not a woman created by the male genius. A VR cinema premiere and exclusive experience with sensory interaction, this piece invites you into an intimate story where memories are physical and fiction is contagious.

Kinematografi, a work in progress, is presented by Malmö based performing arts company Bombina Bombast in collaboration with BoostHbg.

Place: Biograf Spegeln

Day: Saturday 22 September

Time: 11:00 and 13:00
