Introduction

Witness a human story unfolding in virtual reality

Combining virtual reality and live theatre experience, SHH is set during the Covid-19 pandemic and celebrates resilience while creating a space to mourn the departed. This heartfelt VR immersive experience is complemented with a live theatre performance that reflects on the post-pandemic world.

The VR film is created by VR and XR (Extended Reality) artist Zhang Daming (Shanghai) and her expert team, employing the latest 3-D modelling technology and special filming performed by a cast of four actors. The theatre part is created by playwright/director Santayana Li (Hong Kong).
