Ultiverse Live is an encounter in the interactive installation where audiences are immersed in an emotive journey inspired by the migration experience.
Ultiverse 2018 engaged live audiences and collaborations with artists to build the conversational environment and create a live performance in the installation. A making residency at Union 105 resulted in a special event at The Tetley for Light Night Leeds.
