QUASEILHAS is an interactive VR experience based on the beautiful and haunting theatrical production created by Brazilian playwright Diego Pinheiro. QUASEILHAS evokes the separation between Africa and her Diasporas, which continue to co-exist as distant yet connected islands separated by the veil of memory, across which faint echoes of a shared history can be perceived.
The play was conceived as a series of Oríkìs written in homage to his ancestral heritage, and is performed entirely in the Yoruba language by members of the Araka collective. This VR production recreates the live experience of QUASEILHAS where the audience can choose one of three rooms in which the play occurs simultaneously, while the performers weave the threads that connect this narrative.
