Limina VR Weekender: Future and Fantasy

Duration: 50 min

The Limina VR Weekender
Presented by Limina Immersive, in partnership with Royal Holloway university
For ages 13+

We are proud to present the Limina VR Weekender, an opportunity to discover a range of world-class, artistic VR experiences right here at Picturehouse Central.

Works will be presented in Limina’s unique ‘VR Theatre’ space - a relaxed and calm environment for collectively experiencing VR, enabling you to discover the layers of meaning behind each virtual experience.

We’ll be presenting different VR Sessions which delve into a particular theme and transport you on a unique journey. Each session will be approximately 50 minutes long.

We’ll never be able to fully predict the future, but we can still enjoy the mind-bending effect that contemplating it brings. Sit back, relax and enjoy a futuristic, fantastical journey into the work of Arthur C. Clarke, French electro artist N’to and the Alexander Whitley Dance Company.

Shows start at specified time on ticket, please arrive 10 minutes early.


I SAW THE FUTURE // Arte, François Vautier

In 1964, Arthur C. Clarke, the co-writer of Stanley Kubrick’s on 2001: A Space Odyssey, reveals his vision of the future. By revisiting the signal transmitted by the first cathodic images, this VR experimental film literally plunges us into the sound and visual matrix at the heart of this archive. In a dark expanse that could be the cosmos, we hear a voice: that of Clarke, whose face appears in the distance. His features quickly dematerialize into a multitude of shimmering pixels, creating an enveloping and immersive space out of which the thoughts emerge

CELESTIAL MOTION // The Guardian, Shehani Fernando, Alexander Whitley Dance Company

Inspired by solar science and spectacular images of the Sun, Celestial Motion explores humans’ relationship to the sun through a cosmic meld of contemporary dance and motion-capture technology.

FANTASYNTH // HelloEnjoy, N’to

Described by Road to VR as “An infectiously cool ride through mind-bending geometry”, Fantasynth is an audio-reactive experience designed for Virtual Reality. Glide through a procedurally populated environment that comes alight with the music, featuring the song Chez Nous by N’to.
