Circus in a Bottle is an interactive and immersive live performance presented using digital and augmented reality. We follow ‘The Barker’ who, despite growing up in the Circus, has inherited none of his family’s skills. Touring big tops with his grandiose father, he witnessed it all; acts that defied logic, defined generations and underlined the majesty of the sawdust ring. But now, those once great Circus names have vanished into history for good… or have they?
The Barker and his miniature assistant recreate these Circus acts from bygone years before your very eyes. Once told, he packs these stories into a suitcase ready to take to the road.
This incredible experience fuses cutting edge technology with live performance. Audiences, using Magic Leap AR headsets, will uncover some of the trapeze-like highs and the crushing lows of life under the big top.
Press & Reviews
"[K]inestetic touch-points pull our spatial senses away from the boundaries of the room (which could be anywhere and therefore doesn't matter) and into the cozy circle of the table, our host, and our companions' smiles at the charming little transparent performer capering between us."
"I found it difficult to contain my unbridled joy when I first had the Magic Leap goggles on and saw beautifully clear 3D imagery pop up onto the table."
