What is Metamorphosis?


SURGE was a multidimensional live performance produced in collaboration with immersive studio, Megaverse, which brings to life our lost connection with water – a life-giving and destructive force. Using motion capture, Virtual Reality headsets and live performance, ticketed audiences were invited to roam around a set exploring the juxtaposition of digital and physical perspectives.

The performance featured music by Anna Meredith, spoken word poetry by Vanessa Kisuule, and a live performance by The PappyShow.

SURGE was commissioned by Digital Catapult and Sage Gateshead and is part of the ImmexCity project, part-funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund.
