Live Performance 360

the intersection of live performance and immersive technology

An ongoing project that explores how performing artists, presenters and producers are creating and working with XR.

LivePerformance360 is Boca del Lupo’s presentation series curated by Sherry J Yoon, Artistic Director.

LP360 2023 opened with The Performance Corporation’s Emperor 101 in April. This ground-breaking production is at the cutting edge of an emerging crossover between theatre and Virtual Reality. In May, was this year’s VR Salon showcasing Goliath (by Barry G. Murphy & May Abdalla) and The Man Who Couldn’t Leave (by Singing Chen). In June, it premiered Reconciling by Yvette Nolan along side the return of last year’s hit, Pochsy at the Airport Hotel.

LP360 was launched in February 2022 with Swimming Home, an immersive auto-teatro piece by Silvia Mercuriali where audience participated from their own bathrooms, followed by a double bill of The Magic Hour 360 produced by Electric Company Theatre and The Only Animal and Pochsy at the Airport Hotel created by Karen Hines. The third iteration was VR Salon, two suites of works from creators from all over the globe curated to stimulate the audience’s imagination of what is possible in VR. The final presentation of the inaugural series was Underwater Archeologist, imagined and created by Sherry J Yoon and Jay Dodge, presented by Vancouver International Children’s Festival.

LivePerformance360 also has an industry facing initiative that includes archiving performance for touring companies, interested presenters and invested academics.

Finally, LivePerformance360 contemplates the use of immersive technology as a tool for accessibility aimed at audiences in isolated communities and individuals with mobility issues that prevent them from attending a performance in person.

In addition to the online digital experience of LivePerformance360, we’ve set up the Fishbowl as an education and demonstration centre on Granville Island.
