The Missing Half
An immersive expedition into the heart of romantic passion
‘The Missing Half’, is a dystopian XR theatre experience based on Aristophanes’ myth from Plato through a Sensual cinematic lens, designed to deepen the understanding of romantic passion and its impact on modern society.
Spanning seven multimedia chapters, including a motion capture MR short film, participants in pairs are invited to a 6,000 square foot space to navigate the depths of passion. Here, they oscillate between being mere observers and silent actors, journeying through a spectrum of emotions stirred by Aristophanes’ myth.
Much of the frustration and violence in our modern society stems from the difficulty of managing our relationships. The goal is to gain a deeper insight into our emotions through physical, olfactory, and sensory immersion, fostering emotional maturity and purifying our approach to these challenges.www
