One of VR’s most exciting qualities is its powerful ability to foster feelings of intimacy. Second Date demonstrates what VR is capable of in terms of showing the nuances of human relationships, sensuality and sexuality. Set on an Amsterdam houseboat, Second Date is an observational, lighthearted, unscripted portrait of two young people fumbling towards ecstasy. Trying to find common ground, their conversation veers from clumsy to joyous and back again - until they finally start connecting for real.


How the LIMINA Immersive VR Experience Sessions work:

Saturday 21st - Monday 23rd

In order to create a sense of an audience for what remains an individual experience, we are setting up five Oculus Rift systems our 'screening room', the Timmy Hele room at Emmanuel College. Each day will have its own dedicated VR experience. That VR piece will be ticketed, and screened hourly – offering you a chance to experience this emerging medium and then share your thoughts afterwards, traditional style in Picturehouse Bar. The programme includes a range of challenging works that stretch the creative boundaries of this emerging medium. Restricted to 18 plus only. Please note that Monday’s piece, Second Date, includes particularly adult content.

All sessions bookable in advance. Audience must arrive promptly at session time to allow for briefing. No latecomers will be admitted. An experienced VR host will guide the audience through the experience.
