What happens when the desires hidden in the dark corners of your mind are suddenly brought to light? What if they have been the driving force of your choices all this while?
Inspired by the work of Sigmund Freud, WHIST invites you on a journey into the unconscious mind, where your instincts will guide you through a narrative of surreal dreams and fears.
The experience merges Physical Theatre and Mixed Reality Technology, in an environment that blurs the boundaries between consciousness and unconsciousness, reality and fiction, the physical and the virtual. Through art and sound installation coupled with cinematic and interactive 360° film, you will be immersed in a world of unfolding dreams. Who knows where your subconscious will lead you?
Age guidance: 16 years and above
Warning: Contains partial nudity and sexual reference.
