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.

Icelandic/British company Huldufugl returns with their VR theatre experience A Box In The Desert to Jacksons Lane as a part of the Raindance Film Festival official selection. This performance is nominated for Raindance's Best Interactive Narrative Experience award.

A Box in the Desert has picked up coveted awards across Europe and the USA, winning the A MAZE Festival's Most Amazing Game Award 2019 and San Diego Fringe's Best USA Premiere. At the Stockholm Fringe, it was given the Innovation in Performance Award and was nominated for the Grand Prix, the overall prize for excellence.
