Event description
The Story Collider presents a very special immersive storytelling experience that brings you into the ocean that makes our planet livable.

About this Event

The Story Collider is proud to create an immersive storytelling show that showcases some of our very best stories from ocean scientists about their personal experiences with the sea. As we seek to protect our vital oceans, we use these personal narratives to explore our human connection to the world that exists inside our own planet.

In this show we will present four true, personal stories about science and the ocean. They will take us on a journey from the shoreline to the depths of the ocean floor where the creatures are as alien as our imaginations can handle. The walls of our space will be video projection of the ocean itself, so as the audience hears these stories they will be transported deeper and deeper into the ocean waters themselves. Working with 360 degree video footage and soundscapes captured from the ocean world, this show hopes to bring the storyteller's journey to life in a way that storytelling has rarely seen.

Tickets are limited because space in the venue is limited, so please get your tickets early.

Doors will be at 7:00 pm with beer, wine, and light snacks, and open gallery hours to see artist James Allister's work (https://knockdown.center/event/james-allister-sprang-fragment-scapes/) as well as some secret ocean installations.

Show will be from 8:00 - 9:30 pm

Post reception will go until 10:30 with more drinking, eating, and a chance to see the technical aspects of how we transported an entire audience under the sea.

The show will be hosted by the artistic director of Story Collider, Erin Barker.
