SLUMBERLAND: Why Can't We Sleep?
BY BOMBINA BOMBAST AND LOST IN TIME
Slumberland is a live virtual reality performance that journeys beyond the cosmos to a place of collective rest and reflection. Using an Oculus VR headset, audiences will enter new dimensions, engaging live with a performer based in Malmö, Sweden. In these alternate realms, audiences bear witness to the stories of earth's sleepless youth while freely wandering through strangers' bedrooms, catching talking stars as they fall from the heavens, and exploring new dimensions of empathy that can only exist outside of physical space.
Created from ongoing interviews about insomnia with young adults around the world, Slumberland is an unparalleled hybrid of documentary audio theater, game design and immersive installation.
