ShadowPlay is a 3-minute 360 dance film features hip-hop performer Si Rawlinson, with an original score by award-winning composer Tim Dickinson. The piece investigates how choreography, immersive sound and 360 filmmaking can inform each other to develop new work for emergent immersive environments. This is a work in progress and we'd love you to try it out and tell us what you think...

The piece is a collaboration between live performance company Assault Events, the immersive storytelling studio Cats Are Not Peas and the Institute of Creative Technologies, DMU. This piece is the result of the IOCT's RiskyPlay initiative, funded by DeMontfort University.

Imagine you are the captain of a space station. A space station suddenly presented with a humanitarian crisis. When given the choice, who will you save?

Playing God is an interactive VR thought experiment by Ben Fredericks that lets you imagine you are the captain of a space station, a space station suddenly presented with a humanitarian crisis. It challenges its audience with a series of scenarios and questions based it's upon its narrative to explore how the audience would deal with a humanitarian crisis themselves.
