LePARC is thrilled to be hosting this performance & VR event with Emer O’Toole, professor in the Irish Studies department and recent new faculty member to the research cluster. The 6-day run launches on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) and ends on March 22, 2023, at the Milieux Institute (EV 11.725)!
Based on some of the finest contemporary writing in the Irish language, Ar Ais Arís combines literature and visual poetry in a Virtual Reality experience. Brú Theatre Company’s artists have created three 180° films, immersing audiences in a fusion of movement, text, music and stunning Connemara landscapes through the use of VR headsets. Described by The Irish Times as “a compelling piece of work that engages with both Irish cultural tradition and with the emerging future of theatre practice.”
