Description

Join us for the UK Premiere of COSMOS WITHIN US, a 40-minute immersive experience that combines virtual reality, live music and live narration.

One audience member will get to experience the show in a VR headset while up to ten audience members will get to follow the show in a theatre style seating. Revenue from ticket sales will be given as a charitable donation to Alzheimer’s Society.


COSMOS WITHIN US

Directed by Tupac Martir, this story draws us inside the mind of Aiken, a 60-year-old man suffering from Alzheimer’s. As we wander through the spaces of his past, they shape-shift, as if in a state of constant re-construction inside his fragmented brain. However, the precious moments from childhood that Aiken manages to keep hold of, feel tainted. Concealed in oblivion, there is one memory he’s trying to forget. Alzheimer’s does not discriminate. This piece was created to deliver a sense of hope and understanding to anyone affected by this very common and devastating disease. With advancements in VR, we strive to remember the forgotten. After all, Memory is all We Are.


Director's Statement

Loss is an inevitable part of life. Some are devastated by it, while others draw on it for motivation. The way memory influences our identity inspired me to tell this story in VR and bring to life what it means to forget. My grandfather told me that if you can see something of yourself in others, there’s also something of them within you.
