Future Screens NI are delighted to welcome ground-breaking VR content creator, Christopher Lane to present at Future Tuesdays 15th of June 12 Noon.
Christopher Lane is a pioneering theatre director and the Creative Director of Relative Motion, a VR storytelling studio run by theatre-makers.
Having worked extensively in new musicals, classics and opera, Christopher moved into narrative VR in 2017. With support from Arts Council England and Heritage Lottery, he created two new VR productions: Shakespeare VR (recently acknowledge by UKRI as an outstanding and influential immersive experience from the last 20 years) and a new CG drama, Reorientation, in collaboration with Breaking Fourth Ltd. His work with Relative Motion includes Tosca VR (a commission/collaboration with The Space), Edward II VR(ACE and The Barn Theatre, Cirencester) and three new VR experiences with Sheffield’s Music in The Round. Presently, Relative Motion are being funded by the British Council to develop a new narrative VR experience with The Freedom Theatre in Palestine.
In working at the intersection of theatre and VR for the last five years, Christopher has acted as a consultant in immersive storytelling for theatre organisations including the Royal Opera House, Chichester Festival Theatre and the Stratford Festival of Canada. He was part of the RSC/Magic Leap Cohort in 2019 and is presently developing a workshop series in narrative VR for an MA performance programme at the Stockholm University of the Arts.
Chris will be sharing his insights on creating narrative VR and will discuss how theatre practices and paradigms can help shape the future of VR storytelling.
