…the new installation “Draw Me Close” from Canadian playwright and director Jordan Tannahill, with support from the National Theatre (NT) and National Film Board of Canada (NFB), offers a physical environment that connects with the story in the HTC Vive headset.
But unlike other VR experiences trying to meld physical and digital, “Draw Me Close” offers a live actor who plays the author’s mother. You step into an illustrative representation of Tannahill’s boyhood home and relive a moment from his childhood. You hold mom’s hand as she guides you through the shag-carpeted house you feel beneath your bare feet. His mother fights cancer and an abusive husband.
