V&A and HTC VIVE Arts have declared a partnership to offer audiences an immersive virtual reality journey to the world of Alice in Wonderland. The virtual reality (VR) event will show V&A’s forthcoming Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser exhibition, which opens on March 27, 2021.
“Alice’s impossible journey through a fantastical universe becomes possible in this exciting new creative platform. From rabbit holes to mirrors, flamingoes to hedgehogs, Wonderland is the perfect world for VR and the V&A is delighted to be pioneering our first ever VR event.” Kate Bailey, show’s curator.
The event was developed in association with the V&A, HTC VIVE Arts, and producers ENGAGE.
Using ENGAGE, audiences can join the event as avatars and interact with each other in virtual reality.
‘Curious Alice’ will be a VR experience and will have enhanced animation, narrative elements, and additional scenes, including the white rabbit as a personal companion.
