Virtual reality meets theatre in “Frogman”: a coming-of-age thriller about a missing child and the search-and-rescue mission that took place in the Great Barrier Reef to find her.
It’s 2018 and a police officer arrives at Meera’s coral laboratory. Meera is interrogated about Ashleigh Richardson, a 13-year-old girl who went missing in 1995.
It’s 1995 and it’s 11-year-old Meera’s first sleepover with best friends Lily and Shaun. Cassette recordings from the radio and Sega Mega Drive distract them from theories about Ashleigh’s disappearance. Outside, on the Great Barrier Reef, police divers are on a search-and-rescue mission by torchlight.
At the crossroads of contemporary performance and cutting-edge tech, Frogman is a coming-of-age thriller exploring the fragility of the childhood imagination. Frogman will sweep you up in its wake with pioneering integration of live performance and the 1995 story line in an immersive 360 degree VR environment.
