***Coming in 2021***
A City of Foxes is a tender and intimate approach to immersive storytelling through VR – that allows the audience to have an interactive encounter with a philosophical fox that questions what companionship means in times of otherness and loss. Set across the landscape of a fantastical war that thrives on the persecution of foxes, this is the story of you sharing a moment of hope and kindness with a vilified other.
Sitting between immersive theatre and interactive VR, this is an experience for one to three audience participants, where they engage with a fox played by a live-actor.
