The musical Lazarus which features songs written and composed by the late David Bowie is set to become a virtual reality experience as part of the Victoria & Albert’s 2017 Performance Festival in London from April 21st through April 30th.
The south London museum will host the VR version of the show, which originally ran in New York from late 2015 through early 2016 and then at London’s Kings Cross Theatre from November o 2016 through January of this year.
Footage of the production will be screened as part of the event’s From VHS To VR portion which is scheduled for the final day of the festival. The curator of the National Video Archive of Performance, Emily Harris, will speak about how the recording was created before inviting the audience to experience the recording via VR headset.
The museum is also host to the Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains which runs through October of this year.
Admission to the event is free, and more information can be found on their website.
