How can I be part of it?
There are three ways for you to join us:
1. The full experience [VR Headset]
If you have access to a PC-based VR-Headset:
Download and install VRChat (vrchat.com) on Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/) for free. A basic familiarity with the mechanics is advised…
2. Interactive [Windows Laptop or Desktop]
If you have access to a Windows-PC:
Download and install VRChat (vrchat.com) on Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/) for free. A basic familiarity with the mechanics is advised, so maybe take 30 minutes to see how this works. There is a beginners’ tutorial and a multitude of worlds to explore. Basically you move around using the W,A,S,D-keys on your keyboard and your mouse to look around.
3. Livestream and chat-feedback [Any Device]
If you are on iOS or use other devices:
Follow the stream on twitch.tv/cyberballet. We’ll be monitoring the chat during the performance, so if you have a twitch-account, chat away, ask questions (later on…)
Please use a headset or at least headphones, please familiarize yourself with your device and the mechanics, please allow vrchat.exe full access to the web in your firewall-settings.
So, what happens during the ‘public rehearsal’?
We’ll all be meeting in our lobby, starting 15 minutes before we begin.
Marcel (‘cyberactor’) and Bjoern (‘KamerakindA’) will be your hosts, so when in doubt, send a friend-request.
At the starting time, we’ll portal all current guests onto the stage. The performance will last about 15 minutes, and afterwards everybody is invited for exploration and discussion (where we’ll also answer questions from the twitch-chat).
We aim to make this an iterative process and so to repeat these public rehearsals during May 2020. Dates and times will be published here and via our social media accounts.
Please sign in here (LINK) with your email, VRChat-name and the performance-date, so we can send you an invite to the lobby.
If you have any questions or technical problems please let us know via email so we can assist you further.
