Virtual reality is usually a solitary affair, but this time you are invited to collectively experience aural and visual immersion in a public space. An actual ball thrown from a great height allows goggle wearers to witness an eruption of colourful drawings. Actions in the real and virtual realms merge, freeing the imagination and intriguing passersby. A Colossal Wave is also linked to the Phi Centre, where participants are invited to explore a different perspective on the connected virtual world.

Presented on the the Parterre from August 30 to October 15 and at the PHI Centre from August 30 to October, 2017, as part of KM3.

A Colossal Wave is co-commissioned by the British Council, in partnership with the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership and Hull UK City of Culture 2017, with additional support from the GREAT Britain campaign, Canadian High Commission in the United Kingdom, Phi & the BFI Vision Awards.
