A coming-of-age, supernatural thriller, experienced in virtual reality and live theater.
From double Fringe First-winners curious directive comes this groundbreaking theatrical experience exploring the fragility of childhood imagination. Known for linking theater and science, the company created a truly unique experience that brings together elements of time travel, scuba diving and a murder mystery told through virtual reality and live performance.
Set in the present, the piece takes audiences back to 1995 to retrieve the memories of an 11-year-old Meera as the police investigate her father's involvement in the murder of a young girl. The audience watches Frogman in Virtual Reality for 50% of the show and the live interrogation for the rest of the show. In the final live scene with grown-up Meera, we find out what really happened that summer in 1995.
During a week-long residency with the Hop, curious directive director Jack Lowe will conduct research for an upcoming work.
Suitable for ages 12 and up.
