Exant would very much like to invite you to experience our new project The Question.  Please join us for a series of special showings for invited audiences at BAC (Battersea Arts Centre) between 14th and 19th June 2010.

The Question is a collaborative and immersive theatre project that explores haptic technology in relation to navigation, perception and knowledge.

The Question is produced by Extant in collaboration with The Open University and BAC.

This innovative collaboration between engineers, artists and academics invites participants to explore a tactile and audio environment in the pitch dark. You will be guided by a haptic device, which uses robotic technology and infrared sensors to change its form in response to your journey through the installation.

As part of the experience, we would also like you to participate in the audience evaluation carried out by the Open University.

Exant would very much like to invite you to a showing of their new project The Question, a fascinating collaboration between the Open University, the Technology Strategy Board and BAC (Battersea Arts Centre).

The project cluminates in a series of research and development showings at BAC in London between June 14th -19th 2010.

The Question is a collaborative and immersive theatre project that explores haptic technology in relation to navigation, perception and knowledge.

This innovative collaboration between engineers, artists and academics invites participants to explore a tactile and audio environment in the pitch dark. You will be guided by a haptic device, which uses robotic technology and infrared sensors to change its form in response to your journey through the installation.

The Question focuses on the senses of touch and hearing, and locates the drama of the narrative in the body of each participant. The story is a fragmented recounting of an abstract blind character, struggling with scientific, philosophical and cultural questions of sensory translation, knowledge and the ultimate impact of these on individual identity.
