FINDING PANDORA X
NARRATIVE DIRECTOR / WRITER
At the crossroads of live theatre and the cutting-edge digital world, Finding Pandora X is a live, immersive theatrical VR experience that draws a modern take to an ancient myth. This revolutionary performance features Broadway talent and premieres the world's first Virtual Repertory Theatre. The audience becomes a part of the performance, playing the role of the Greek Chorus while interacting with live actors as the play unfolds.
With the passing of ages, the Gods of Mount Olympus have faded away until only two remain: Zeus and Hera. Now they too are in danger of disappearing if they cannot recover the box of hope that Pandora removed so long ago.
Finding Pandora X made its World Premiere at the 77th Venice International Film Festival - VR Expanded. Directed by Kiira Benzing, it received the award for Best Immersive User Experience.
