Miyubi – Gender Bender – VR shows on August 9 & 10 2019
Miyubi is a 40-minute virtual reality, scripted comedy about a Japanese toy robot − inhabited by you, the viewer − gifted to a young boy on his birthday in 1982 suburban America. Over the course of a year, as the boy’s family begins to fracture, you experience love and your inevitable obsolescence through an intimate, hilarious and endearing interactive story.
