Holojam in Wonderland
Holojam in Wonderland is a multiplayer, co-located, live theater experience in virtual reality that transports the audience to a landscape inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Actors and audience wear head-mounted displays and see each other in the virtual space and are able to interact with each other directly. Live actors portray the characters and engage directly with the audience to bring them into the story. Tango phones are also available to provide a “magic window” into the action for additional viewers.
The Holojam Theater
The Holojam Theater working group consists of researchers and creators using live performance to create interactive, social VR. It was started by Ken Perlin, Professor of Computer Science and founder and director of the Future Reality Lab at NYU, and Clara Fernandez Vara, Associate Arts Professor at the NYU Game Center.
