Let's enter imaginary worlds through Virtual Reality

I Love Science Festival 2021

For the 2021 edition of the I Love Science Festival, Bozar will present a programme of virtual reality experiences at the Brussels Expo (Heysel). It will plunge visitors of all ages (from 12 to 88) into dream-like worlds, where everything once again seems possible with the help of new technologies.

A large, immersive and entrancing installation, which includes 14 viewing stations via 3D and 360° VR headsets, will highlight experiences that are a tribute to creativity and the imagination. Bozar proves that art and technology are not incompatible, and that such techniques are within the grasp of whoever is interested.

For example, Colin Farrell (Tahar Rahim for the French version) narrates the story of a zombie who falls in love with a human girl in a Tim Burton-esque animation. The three episodes of GLOOMY EYES are a stunning technological feat in terms of audience immersion. Then we are off to the Amazon for a shamanic journey with AYAHUASCA, presented for the first time in Belgium. Expand your spiritual and technological horizons through the virtual practice of the shamanic and Latin American wisdoms of the Shipibo-Conibo Amazonian tribe. More VR experiences will be announced soon.

Each of these experiences is a small masterpiece of animation, acknowledged by the world’s most important virtual reality festivals, such as the Venice Film Festival, Sundance and Tribeca.

Visitors will be welcomed and guided by cultural mediators at the Bozar VR stand.

The programme is subject to change.

If you can’t make it to Heysel or you want to experience VR from home, there’s something new for you at Bozar this autumn: VR TO GO.
