ULTIVERSE LIVE 2018

Ultiverse Live is an encounter in the interactive installation where audiences are immersed in an emotive journey inspired by migration experiences.

Ultiverse 2018 engaged live audiences and collaborations with artists to build the conversational environment and devise the encounter. A residency at Union 105 resulted in a special event at The Tetley for Light Night Leeds.
