The aim of this project is to devise an intermedia experience, combining mixed reality with live performance, where the immersive technology is at the service of the narrative.

Mixed reality headsets are still at an early stage and the quality of the visual experience has not yet reached its full potential. The short film Paraiso – A journey to Paradise shows my vision of what an audience could experience in a close future with a more developed mixed reality platform.

At the exhibition, the live performance will be mixed with projections showing the visuals that would go via the mixed reality platform. There will also be a demo via HoloLens.

I believe theatre should always be connected with society and its problems. The refugee crisis, the topic chosen for this live performance, is one of the current most dramatic issues. Millions of people are displaced due to wars and economic reasons, most of these refugees are taken in by countries near crisis-hit areas, not by wealthy western countries.

Immersive experience enhances the message of the content. The closer to the real experience, the easier to empathize and relate to other realities. It raises the impact created, no matter what the content is. The mixed reality experience itself has proven to cause a positive effect. It can help to deliver the message compellingly, helping the audience to truly understand the dramatic situation on a human level, reaching a higher empathy with the subject.

Theatre aspires to stop time and embark the audience upon a journey full of fascination and surprise, oblivious to the world outside during the performance, to come back transformed and moved by the experience. With this project, I aim to introduce new technologies while keeping the live performing experience at its core to empower the medium to reach a wider audience more compellingly.
