In October 2016, The Endless, tasked by Samsung and Agency Partners PMK/BNC created an exclusive, live-theatre based VR experience in collaboration with Punchdrunk International, creators of the acclaimed interactive theatre piece in New York, ‘Sleep No More’.
“It is worth examining Believe Your Eyes for one important reason: it is the future”
The installation combined live actors, interactive theater and virtual reality to suspend the user in a multi-sensory world where live actors engage the viewer in synchrony with characters from within the virtual reality experience. This crossover of real and virtual spaces allowed us to extend the senses beyond traditional isolated VR experiences.
