The Saga of Sage (S.O.S)
Immersive Transmedia concerts (In development)
The Saga of Sage is a virtual concert series, following the main character Sage in his journey through space. Sage is searching his way back home after becoming lost in a black hole during his mission to find new inhabitable planets. The audience travels with Sage through space. Each month there will be a 15- minute concert on a new planet featuring new characters and songs. The audience will meet many different creatures whose voices can be sung by different artists. The worlds will be built in the VR environment NEOS, accessible to users with a VR-headset. To increase accessibility, we will provide VR-headsets at different venues and build a website for non-VR users.
