One audience member at a time enters a 20-minute virtual reality theatre experience about being trapped inside an invisible box. A voice in your head is pushing you to escape, while a guardian of the box, performed by a live actor, tries to convince you to stay inside, safe from danger.

After a sold-out run at RVK Fringe, Stockholm Fringe and Brighton Fringe, Icelandic/British company Huldufugl brings their VR theatre experience A Box In The Desert to Jacksons Lane.

A Box in the Desert won Stockholm Fringe's Innovation in Performance award and was nominated for Stockholm Fringe's Grand Prix for excellence in performance art. It also won the main prize for A MAZE Festival's Most Amazing Game award (2019).
