Synopsis

The Key is an interactive experience mixing immersive theatre and virtual reality. It has a strong narrative structure punctuated by moments of interactivity. The participant goes on a journey exploring dreams, and must face challenges and difficult decisions in each, experiencing loss. The participant will experience a metaphorical journey from danger to safety. Through this journey a hidden truth is uncovered, and a new beauty revealed.

Director’s Statement

The main challenge for me creating The Key was to find a way to craft interactivity so that it doesn’t get in the way of emotion. I believe VR is a first-person medium. We bring a lot of ourselves in with us: our identity, our thoughts, our emotions. It’s story-living, instead of storytelling.
