Get a look behind the scenes of a new VR performance by the National Theatre School’s Indigenous Artist-in-Residence, Barry Bilinsky in partnership with Montreal animation studio, EDFilms.

EDFilms’ new technology “Puppet Tools” allows artists working in VR to manipulate 3D models in real-time, like puppeteers in performance. Using this tool, Barry investigates how our bodies respond under various perspectives like the male gaze, the colonial gaze, hunger, thirst, race, and gender to experiment the devised applications of the tool and program.
