Carry Me Home
The first cross-reality live circus with motion caption
Scopo Photography was so fortunate to be able to be apart of this groundbreaking series. It was the first circus performance to use a 4-Audience model, exploring what a musical circus in the metaverse can look like. The show itself was inspired by Didier Stowe’s life experiences, virtually transporting the audience to a set resembling the inner workings of his mind.
The action and dreamy imagery was brought to life through motion tracking technology to provide two shows in one. The first, a live production for an in-person audience, and the second was an online virtual reality experience via live stream.
