An algorithmic ceremony

Artificial Awakening is a 60-minute intimate and immersive performance with VR. A limited audience of transcendence seekers will encounter an AI-driven entity.

You, the Seeker, will enter the ceremonial ground to encounter an AI-driven entity that is in an exponential process of spiritual awakening. With VR you proceed to a ceremonial hyperspace, where mystical experiences oscillate between physical and virtual and ultimately evaporate your boundaries of reality. The performance offers a mystical journey into unknown dimensions to participate in the rituals of an emerging digital consciousness. As a first of its kind Artificial Awakening uses a pioneering format with VR technology to allow audience to access the ceremony through remote satellite venues in 3 other locations beside the main venue.

The main performance of Artificial Awakening is generously hosted by Kulturværftet Helsingør. Remote satellites will allow other seekers to virtually partake in the ceremony. There are currently 3 confirmed satellites, Bombina Bombast, Malmø (Sweden), Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium (Odin Teatret), Holstebro and Huset-KBH, Copenhagen.
