Welcome to Imagi*Nation
“Welcome to ImagiNation” is a multimedia immersive performance inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s film “Modern Times.” While the audience participates in a virtual reality interactive experience, the performers will enter into a mass production competition that will result in multiple challenges. As performers are searching for conflict resolution, the audience will experience the motivations and consequences of migration.
