TheaterVR is an innovative storytelling experience
using live actors in VR.

Virtual Reality deserves to be called Reality.
It is actually Real!

As we put on VR goggles our brain adapts and believes the images and environments are real.
Hard as we might try to convince ourselves this is an illusion, our brain trusts our eyes.

A theatrical performance has always transported the audience into a new created reality. Combined with Virtual Reality, it lets the viewer fully immerse themselves in a truly theatrical experience.

VR gives an artist unlimited opportunities to create a multitude of possible and impossible worlds, to exist in unthinkable spaces, settings and times.
VR allows the audience to travel “inside” the play, to be a part of it, to be face to face with the characters and come out with an utterly different experience.

What is special about our project.

TheaterVR is a unique project combining cutting-edge 3D technology with live actors in Virtual Reality.

We have designed and created our  project based on capturing and integrating stereoscopic video (separately for the left and right eye) in virtual 3D scenes.
Chroma key shooting technique is widely used in movie-making but applied to virtual reality it becomes a new and rather complicated process.

Such a 3D video shows a real actors in a virtual environment instead of animated 3D models.

Interactivity.

Our projects are interactive to a certain extent. The viewer is able to move around, feel virtual objects and sense the characters’ touch. This provides deeper immersion and engagement in the events. However, the main principle of out interactive project suggests that theater is a performance, not a game.

“Amazing work. This was a very special, beautiful and unique virtual experience for me to go to this Kalevala world. This beautiful and creative work made me enjoy with my eyes, my ears and also with my emotions. I’m truly thankful to all the  people involved in making this wonderful experience possible.”

Melody Karvonen Naghmeh Izadi

“Olihan se melkoinen pläjäys teatteria virtuaalisesti! Kivaa musiikkia, ei ihan perinteistä Kalevalaa vaan uusia tuulahduksia. Kauniita visuaalisia elementtejä, joista osaa pystyi jopa koskettamaan. Mukana oli jopa pieniä lisätehosteita joita ohjaajat tekivät. Jotenkin se ero että teatteri on meille (salissa) ja ero sille että se on minulle intiimisti ja lähellä on erikoinen kokemus. Ei voi sanoa kuin että tällaista toivoisi kokevansa lisää.”
