“A 360 heightening of the senses” ★★★★The Sunday Mail
“Touching and nostalgic” ★★★★The Independent

In 2018, a police officer arrives at Meera's coral laboratory. Meera is interrogated about Ashleigh Richardson, a 13-year-old girl who went missing in 1995.

In 1995, at 11-year-old Meera’s first sleepover with best friends Lily and Shaun, cassette tape radio recordings and a Sega Mega Drive distract them from theories about Ashleigh’s disappearance. Outside, on the Great Barrier Reef, police divers are on a search-and-rescue mission by torchlight.

At the crossroads of contemporary performance and cutting-edge technology, Frogman is a coming-of-age thriller exploring the fragility of the childhood imagination. Audiences experience the 1995 storyline in a 360 degree VR environment and the interrogation as live stage performance. Frogman is a pioneering integration of life performance and immersive technology.
