The Host VR
Venue: The Yard Theatre
Co-Directors: Sean Hollands and Ben Carlin
Company: Epiphany VR
Cast: Members of the National Youth Theatre
In partnership with the National Youth Theatre and their production of The Host by Nessah Muthy, we created a partner virtual reality experience.
The Host is the story of a refugee who comes to the UK, and it tells the story of what happens to him when he arrives, and the impact he has on a small family unit.
Rather than tell this story in VR, we spoke to refugees and recorded their stories about what the UK is to them, and how they feel about their new home.
The VR experience sits you across the table from those telling their stories, and as they tell them, you see aspects of their new and past lives played out around you.
