David Bowie‘s Lazarus musical is set to become a virtual reality experience.
The show was performed at London’s Kings Cross Theatre from November 2016 to January 2017, following a six-week stint in New York in late 2015 and early 2016.
The new version of the show will form part of the V&A’s 2017 Performance Festival, which is due to take place between April 21 – 30 at the museum.
Footage of Lazarus is to be screened during the From VHS To VR event, which is scheduled for the festival’s final day. The clips being used were recorded at one of the performances in January and will feature the musical’s stars Michael C Hall, Amy Lennox and Sophia Anne Caruso.
Ahead of the VR experience, Emily Harris, the National Video Archive Of Performance curator, will speak about the making of the recording. The audience will then be invited to take part in the experience via the use of VR headsets.
Admission to the event is free and more information can be found on the V&A’s official website.
