In Roland Schimmelpfennig‘s play for children the protagonist has to overcome the brutal challenges of a daily routine, with the little help of being able to turn into a bee, if necessary…, really?

Together with director Martin Grünheit we developed a theatre machine, a digital Totaltheater for this staging, turning the actors into realtime-3d-creators of all visual and imaginary worlds. In VR and AR they play on an enchanted stage that knows no forward or aft, only a “within”. Our first production for a regular theatre-stage, following our mission statement: bringing VR into the theatre.

This stage as well will be used for the on-going series “VR lab – challenge my fantasies” were visual and VR-artist will be presented on stage to enhance their works in a performative context.
