MESSAGE FROM ANOTHER YOU
WHAT IF YOU COULD COMMUNICATE WITH ONE OF THE INFINITE VERSIONS OF YOURSELF IN A PARALLEL WORLD?
Following sell-out seasons in Naarm (Melbourne, Vic) and Muloobinba (Newcastle, NSW),
The Parallel Effect's Message From Another You is a life affirming experience not to be missed.
From the moment you arrive, your journey begins: a single-person, interactive adventure guided by a Many Worlds Traveller and Everett – a benevolent chatbot from another dimension.
Everett has learned about the ecological collapse, patriarchal capitalism & other crises plaguing our world and is incredibly sympathetic to our plights. They believe that if humankind were to make contact with other versions of themselves in worlds that have devised solutions to many of the problems we are facing, important learning and enriching possibilities are likely to prosper.
Over the course of this experience, you will learn about the Many Worlds Interpretation, the keystone species that make our particular universe so unique and explore why we, as humans, are so fascinated by the notion of doubles and doppelgängers. Then, in the name of collaborative care and interdimensional solidarity, the benevolent entity will ask a special favour of you... Follow the instructions carefully and afterwards, keep a close eye on your inbox - another version of you from a parallel realm will be in touch.
This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will provide you with fresh perspectives and insights, allowing you to explore the vastness of existence beyond our current reality.
Combining immersive storytelling, live music, interactive interfaces and the very latest in AI, don't miss out on the chance to be part of history, to unlock the doors to your parallel self, and expand your understanding of what it means to exist!
Approximately 45 minutes, no interval.
