In My Shoes: Intimacy – VR Sessions

In My Shoes: Intimacy – VR Sessions

In my shoes: Intimacy is a 360-degree virtual reality experience that explores the power of human connection.

Put aside your inhibitions, sit down with another person and look into their eyes. Let these strangers guide you through their impromptu, unconventional and intense moments of intimacy through virtual reality.

In my shoes: Intimacy is a first-person documentary by immersive-theatre creator Jane Gauntlett that tells the stories of two strangers, two comrades and two lovers. It explores the importance of intimacy in survival, relationships and sexuality from a first-person perspective. In my shoes is an ever-expanding collection of first-person, documentary style interactive performances, which guide participants through the beautiful, the challenging, the mundane and the surreal aspects of being human.
