The National Theatre’s musical VR experience transports the viewer into a vibrant theatrical world inspired by the influence of Caribbean culture upon the UK music scene.

This dazzling VR experience is led by the acclaimed vocalist and singer Nubiya Brandon, with original music by Raffy Bushman and the NuShape Orchestra.

Embark on a musical journey through different styles and genres, from Reggae and Grime to Classical and Calypso, reflecting on the influence of Caribbean culture on the UK’s music scene.

Sophisticated, personal, flamboyant – this immersive musical experience was commissioned by the National Theatre in direct response to Small Island, their acclaimed 2019 production of Andrea Levy’s epic novel about the Windrush generation.

Originally showcased as a multiplayer experience at the National Theatre, we are proud to present a newly developed single-user-version of the piece.

The presentation of this piece marks the beginning of our long-term partnership with the National Theatre on presenting XR and Immersive Art forms in our LFF Expanded programme.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

You’ll need an Oculus Rift, Rift S or HTC Vive tethered headset to experience this work for free.

Booking available here soon

From Wednesday 7th October until Sunday 18th October 2020,
