Our first production Alibi uses this technology and it went live on Feb 6, 2021. Inspired by Tristen Tzara’s 1924 French Dadaist play Handkerchief of Clouds, Alibi is an augmented reality theatre production that immerses the audience in a love triangle told through fragments of movement, music and absurdity. When one of the lovers is murdered, a private investigator uses augmented reality, motion capture and voice recognition software to solve the homicide.
