Traitor – Expanding the Narrative

Pilot Theatre and University of York

Pilot Theatre is an international touring theatre company based in York. Their projects are interactive and participatory. Working outside traditional theatre buildings, Pilot Theatre productions often explore our changing relationship with technology. 

Traitor has emerged from a sell-out immersive theatre production performed in early 2017. The project develops this performance into a two-player experience combining VR, video and live action. The performance is a thriller that deals with themes of citizenship, ethics and surveillance. It places participants at the centre of the story.

With funding from XR Stories, Pilot and the University of York explore how VR and interactive technology can create a truly unique creative performance. VR is the perfect medium for Traitor, taking the original production and transforming it into something uniquely immersive.
