//RIDE VR, inspired by the world premiere of //RIDE (a motorcycle meditation). A cross between a video arcade game and a living documentary; it invites both the audience and biker to meet - and go for a ride.
//RIDE VR celebrates motorcycle culture. Part-documentary, biker-biography and travel journal, it retells characters testimonials from varying landscapes and diverse backgrounds. A collaborative performance; one that combines role-play, pervasive technology and interactive documentary.
Using 360 filming technology, journeys are recorded and edited to allow the boundaries of viewer and subject to blur with different horizons, creating a new and thrilling experience. Connecting to themes of meditation and freedom, the motorcycle becomes an exploration of where active and passive spectatorship meet.
//RIDE VR will be the beginning of a wider network of pieces, part of a vision of national and international venues adding to a growing collection of different cultural perspectives and rides that can be shared worldwide.
