Demons VR

Demons VR

BASED ON A NOVEL BY FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY

DEMONS VR is a spectacle combined with an exhibition, a prototype of a theatrical piece as contained in a new medium, which is virtual reality.

DEMONS VR is a visual theater based on the original interpretation of Dostoevsky's novel. We look at everything from the perspective of SHIGALYEV, the famous Devil character, recognized by numerous commentators as the author of the totalitarian system and the incarnation of evil.

DEMONS VR is a unique experience co-authored by the viewer. Spectators have the deciding vote on the overall spectacle editing, create their course of action according to their own intuition. Isolation room is where they can witness the interrogation of SHIGALYEV. The virtual world is where they can experience a journey through the mind of the accused. Their perception is not limited to one point of view, changing of the oculus makes the perspective change. At the same time, the viewer has more intimate contact with the actors than it would be if it was a classical theater.

DEMONS VR is a collection of people-insects locked in showcases, where they conduct conversations inspired by Dostoyevsky's novel – the collection being thrown into the virtual world. This is the place where scientific observation of minds infected by the devils – the ideas becomes a metaphysical experience.

DEMONS VR is another formal experiment at the STUDIO, which aims to break the boundaries between theater and visual arts. Another implementation of the theater gallery concept after the cycle based on Daniel Buren's work done in-situ.
