It's a VR experience unlike any you have experienced!
Presented in conjunction with the Brisbane International Film Festival, the Frogman experience comes at you from the UK, fusing live theatre with 360-film and binaural sound, it blurs the lines between reality and fiction, the physical and the virtual. Performed to an intimate audience of 60 people aided by a VR headset, Frogman changes the storytelling norm in a theatre environment.
It’s 2018, a police officer arrives at Meera’s coral laboratory. Meera is interrogated about Ashleigh Richardson, a 13-year-old girl who went missing in 1995. It’s 1995, and Meera is eleven. It’s her first sleepover with her best friends, Lily and Shaun. Cassette recordings from the radio and Sega Mega Drive distract them from theories about Ashleigh’s disappearance. Outside, on the Great Barrier Reef, police divers are on a search-and-rescue mission by torchlight.
A once a coming-of-age drama, thriller and pioneering integration of live performance and virtual reality, Frogman will sweep you up in its wake.
