Put on your VR headset and embark on a unique choreographic journey, walking the line between reality and illusion...

Facades is a room-scale dance-theatre virtual reality (VR) experience by Displace Studio, created by Digital Dance Artist Kerryn Wise and Creative Technologist Ben Neal.

Inspired by iconic film scenes including Rear Window, The Wizard of Oz, and The Mirror, Facades uses the architectural features of mirrors, windows and doors as metaphors for duality, reflection and portals.

This surreal ‘VR noir’ presents hauntingly beautiful choreography from unique perspectives to expose themes of vulnerability, trust, disembodiment and isolation, inviting the viewer to step into the frame, move beyond the veneer and take a closer look.

FACADES is available to experience at home for a limited time between 1–30 November.

To receive a download link, instructions and access code, book a ticket via TicketTailor here. Tickets are pay-what-you can.

Please note: you will need access to an Oculus Quest 2, a link cable/Air link and a VR-ready laptop/computer to experience Facades at home. This experience is suitable for ages 12+.
