Get pumped, with Heart VR!


Heart VR is an interactive Virtual Reality performance that takes place inside a virtual beating human heart. Premiered in Bendigo from March 2021, Heart is being further developed as a virtual 'touring' work.

In a collaboration with the Faculty of Arts at the University of Melbourne and working with an ensemble of students drawn from seven different Bendigo secondary schools, Heart VR continues Arena’s groundbreaking work in stripping away the presumed uses of new technologies to create unique performance outcomes.

Heart VR is a work that confronts its participants to reflect upon the self, questioning what it is that exists at their centre. What it is that drives their interactions with others.
