Electrick Village present the world premiere of:
The Extension - Part of the Wandsworth Fringe Festival
Sunday 6th, Monday 7th, Monday 14th & Friday 18th May.
Performances will be in the Tooting area - more details will be disclosed after booking confirmation.
Electrick Village present The Extension: an immersive, sensory experience, enhanced by the use of virtual reality to tell its story created by Ben Grant and Carly McCann.
Two scientists, an undisclosed location and a secret to tell.
They are in desperate need for your help.
Are you the answer they're looking for?
How important is your legacy?
The Extension explores the concept of digital presence after death.
Reflecting on a world where virtual presence is starting to blend with reality and social interaction becomes less and less human, it begs to question: Is what remains more important than the precious time spent with our loved ones?
With the audience acting as the key piece to the puzzle, they are transported to the heart of an enigmatic story, heightened by sensory elements within a virtual landscape.
Each experience will last approximately 25 minutes and will consist of one audience member at a time - creating a uniquely personal narrative.
The immersion begins as soon as your ticket is bought, as you put yourselves forward to aid or hinder our protagonists.
The Extension hopes to remind audiences what it's like to experience, to feel and to interact.
A tutorial on how it is to be human.
