a virtual reality comedy performed simultaneously to virtual and real world audiences.
LOVESEAT is a romantic comedy about Abby and Bruce who compete for the love of an armchair on the reality show “The Perfect Partner.”
Part-story, part-interaction between virtual and real worlds, the actors perform simultaneously in front of a live audience and a virtual audience hosted on a social VR platform.
Before and after the main performance, audience members can immerse themselves in the storyworld of Loveseat with a Bose AR spatialized audio experience. In addition, they can learn more about today’s contestants and leave their own personal “trace” behind by contributing to a playful collective story.
Two lonely, ordinary people are drawn into a reality show competition to win the love of a Perfect Partner (who looks an awful lot like an empty chair). Performed simultaneously to virtual and real world audiences.
