DOOM ROOM is a church.
An immersive Virtual Reality performance that guides our perception of identity.
The oracle welcomes the audience and perform communion. One at a time a blindfolded audience of six enters a room.
Here they embody a hunter with a bloody heart in his hand. They go through a spectrum of emotions and spaces that all try to make their heart beat.
But by traveling through these constructed realities of hyper sensuality and suspension they find themselves searching for meaning, which in the end will resolve in their realization that they themselves are physically present in the only narrative available - their own.
The performance is recommended by Information, Politiken, Teater 1 and the danish cultureblog Kulturshot, gives it 6 out of 6 shots and adds:
"Doom Room is a sensuous and surreal experience that leaves you with food for thought.
An experience you dont want to miss!".
DOOM ROOM is an art installation commissioned by I AM Vodka.
I AM Vodka approached the creators of Doom Room and gave them a simple, yet complex task: create an installation that moves us. The idea behind this approach was to stop conforming to traditional marketing approaches and instead let the true creatives create something real, raw and extraordinary.
For that purpose the duo was given 100% artistic freedom to envision something that was not constrained or restricted and instead they were tasked to imagine and create the opposite: something free and limitless.
