Vector: New Dates Coming soon
A new virus is ravaging the planet, infecting animals and humans at a worrying rate; we welcome you to BioCore, a medical research facility tasked with managing this crisis and finding an immunisation to protect our planet.
Working as part of a team and against rival labs, you will be guided by our Artificial Intelligence System to decide the most effective and ethical way forward, but time is short and lives are on the line...
Vector is an interactive experience, which uses elements of performance, game and integrated technology to open up dialogue and shed light on the ethics that society faces when using animals as part of medical research.
Vector is a public engagement project that has been created by interactive and immersive performance makers The Lab Collective, in partnership with the Animal Research Nexus, an interdisciplinary research group that seeks deliver new thinking, research, and engagement that explores the social, cultural and ethical relationships surrounding animal research.
Directed by Joseph Thorpe and Natalie Scott
Performed by Amy Fleming and Bentley Crudgington and Antigoni Spanou
App Development by Katja Mordaunt, Nick Wade, Kris Sum (App Development)
Key Partners include Animal Research Nexus and The Wellcome Trust
Performed at: Hotbox Live as part of British Science Festival 2021, Manchester University, Oxford University, Oxford Fire Station, Niamos Space (Manchester), The Fly Pit (London)
workshops: NEW DATES COMING SOON
We are hugely excited to present our programme of workshops, Roots. These sessions are an introduction to creating interactive and immersive performance for theatre makers, directors and performers who want to develop new skills, and understand the creation process of this unique form, starting from the ground up. Our workshops are designed for theatre makers who are interested expanding their skills in creating interactive and immersive performance in both physical and digital contexts.
These sessions will take place on a monthly basis, and culminate in our workshop weekender; you can come to all of the workshops, or just one - and we offer a range of pricing options to suit you.
Included in your bookings will be access to a resource pack designed for your session and inclusion in a participant mailing list which will include industry specific opportunities and news!
For detailed information and prices visit our workshop page here. We've released two subsidised places for our full weekender, making the sessions accessible for practitioners new to making interactive and immersive performance.
