VR – WHAT TO EXPECT
When FRANCIS FOOTWORK was filmed live in the theatre at The Ark, the two eyes of the 180º stereoscopic camera were sitting in the middle of the front row of seats – so when you watch through the VR headset, you will feel like you are in the front row too, watching the performance in 3D! You can move your head and choose where you look, just like you would in a theatre. You will be seated in a circle, about a metre from the person next to you. You will receive a sanitised Pico 4k VR headset and CoisCéim’s team will help you so that it fits comfortably. The sound is played through speakers in the CoisCéim Studio, so no headphones are needed.
