About the event

For centuries we have mused on the infinity of our soul, which leaves our body after death as a temporary shell and continues to wander, reincarnate   or enjoy eternal life in a heaven. Recently  a new belief has been added: through artificial intelligence   we could upload our minds, as it were. Beliefs that are often based on the contradiction between the deceptive  physical world and a higher eternal reality in which we   rest._cc781905-5cde-3194-bb193b -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

Eurydice, a descent into infinity is a Virtual Reality opera  in which you, as a spectator, immerse yourself in an immersive experience.  A hypnotic and individual journey, inspired by the ancient myth  of Orpheus and Eurydice. A battle between dust and eternity, in which  time fades and the laws of space crumble. 'Where do you belong  ? Between wandering, disembodied souls or with your feet in the  clay?'  _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d-5cdecc583113605_

Director and transdisciplinary theater maker Celine Daemen challenges you   to put on VR goggles and get lost in a never-ending maze _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d1905_corridors_,cc-balustrades_of 5 corridors 3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_behind which open dizzying  depths and vistas. Your curiosity is the best  kompas in this fascinating interspace full of VR, poetry, and enchanting music.

This VR opera is being developed within  de Nieuwe Makers scheme of the Performing Arts Fund in collaboration with Silbersee and VIA ZUID.
