VR Exhibited: Kabaret - Fredrikstad Animation Festival

VR Exhibited: Kabaret

Kabaret (Gina Thorstensen) is an interactive VR experience about synchronized coral spawning, and a singing shrimp’s worries about the future. It’s a playful and explorative journey from the edge of our galaxy to the depths of our oceans. We strum out a chime on glowing phytoplankton, swim through a portal of seafood aspic – the titular “Kabaret”a dish once popular in Norway – and are carried by the moon to a coral reef in mating season. But all is not well here. Can we help save the coral’s yearly spawning? Kabaret is part musical, part documentary and invites us to indulge our curiosity of the natural world, and reflect on our relationship to it.

This event requires a timed ticket. Please select the ticket for the time you would like your VR experience to start. Arrive 5 minutes before your ticketed time.
