The Performance Corporation, Ireland

Emperor 101

Created by Leon Butler, Jo Mangan, Peter Power and Tom Swift

In association with Once Off Productions and The Digital Hub

In the blink of an eye, a family tragedy turns the world upside down. As they pick themselves up again, the survivors try to rebuild the story of their lives through faith, fear and conspiracy.

‘There is no reality, only narrative.’

Using Virtual Reality headsets, the audience is immersed in an alternate digital world that reflects the mind of a conspiracy theorist.

With live performance and extraordinary visuals, the play riffs on influences from ancient mythology to Alice in Wonderland—and asks if rejection of the ‘mainstream’ is a product of fear, or the ultimate act of self empowerment in a complex world?

VR experiences can cause mild nausea.

Supported by the Arts Council, The Digital Hub,
Kildare Co Council and Dublin City Council.

Audience members will be using a VR Headset as part of the live performance. This performance is for an audience of one.
