VR Cinematic Experience: In the Mist – Queer East 2022
May 22 @ 2:30 pm - 8:50 pm BST
In a dim-lit room filled with mist emerge blurred figures of men, tasting desire and experiencing loneliness. Entering a fantasized gay sauna through a VR headset, you are transported to a forbidden zone, a state between dreaming and awakening, a place in which you gaze at someone and are gazed at by them. Theatre, film and new media director Chou Tung-Yen revisits an often-unspoken life experience of gay communities and cultures, exploring this male environment through a poetic lens to speculate on the diverse kinds of love that motivate desire. In The Mist is a hallucinatory and explicit VR experience that has screened and won prizes internationally, that Queer East has installed in London in the form of an intimate sauna locker room.
