The Mixed Reality Experience EURYDIKE combines the potential of visual arts, music theatre, film, games and hightech in a virtual-analogue world to challenge current gender topics – explicitly the role of women in our hightech society.

Crossing boundaries, international theatre, music and media professionals have connected with cooperation partners of various sectors to encourage a broad, sustainable discourse about gender issues, which proves its growing international relevance through different ways of radicalisation as well as through the current #MeToo debate.

With the nominations for the German Computer Game Award (“Best Production 2018”) and the German Developer Award (“Best Innovation 2018”) EURYDIKE continues the success of the award-winning previous project O.R.PHEUS: Exclusive, interactive, immersive – always with its fingers on the pulse of the time.
