Only New Eyes Open to The New Worlds
The architecture of the virtual theatre is inspired by early 1900s visual magician, MC Escher, who created surreal dimensions in his famous deceptive printings. A recent hit game, Monument Valley, reanimated the graphic artist’s artworks with a pop cartoon texture. Similarly, Yoann Bourgeois will elevate MC Escher’s surreal world with his finely honed sensibility. Each room will have a spectacular setting, where a breath-taking performance will take place, orchestrated by the modern visual magician, Yoann Bourgeois.

From My Journal
One evening, I was looking back my childhood memories in my iPhoto. There is my younger sister Toshie’s photo when she was at 6 years old. In the photo, she stands holding a drip-stand in the dark corridor in the hospital. She was a very fragile child and hospitalised often due to her congenital kidney disease. She always waited for our mother’s coming in full of sorrow and anxiety fighting with the disease and its severe pains. We felt her pains and loneliness that feeling was torture for her and us both. I remember it as if it were yesterday and it is still heartbreaking.
There are many children in children’s ward who can't go home and miss their family, friends and pets. They must be very lonely and suffering in pains like Toshie did, even at this moment.
Imagine, if they can access the Yoann Bourgeois’s Metaverse Theatre from their beds, they might be able to forget loneliness and pains and can dream even for a second.
This Metaverse theatre is not only for children but for any people who want to dream or to be lost in the Yoann Bourgeois’s captivating dreams. Especially in this time, mental wellbeing is a major social issue in any generations, this theatre could be a lay of light for them who are struggling from mental illness or anyone who have stressful or depressing day. I have seen my family members and close friends have been suffering from mental illness and severe depressions for more than two decades and sadly one of my friends and former business partner ended his own life during the UK’s 2nd Covid-19 lockdown. If he could have visited our Metaverse Theatre, he might have dreamed and could have found a little hope there…
It’s my ultimate mission and joy that all people in this world adventure into Yoann Bourgeois’s dreams and could find a little hope there. I believe that is all art and technology about.
