A multi-user VR performance and installation directed by Michelle and Uri Kranot

“What does the hangman think about when he goes home at night from work?”

A VR multi-user installation based on Carl Sandburg’s 1922 poem “The Hangman at Home,” We Are at Home is an immersive experience that explores themes of acknowledgement and participation, as well as the awkward intimacy that comes with being human. This unique animated interactive work is a bridge between the digital, performing and visual arts, incorporating the latest innovative technology. At its core is the connection between spectator, witness and accomplice. Participants are invited into a series of stories and rooms, and as part of a shared experience, they will question their own accountability and the role of the individual within the collective.
