Thought-provoking, surprising and unlike anything you have experienced before, Dear Esther Live immerses you in the mysterious mind of a lone narrator as he traverses a bleak and desolate Scottish island.
No two performances are ever the same, as the beautiful computerised environment of the island is explored live by an on-stage operator with live electronics. Merged together with BAFTA-winning composer Jessica Curry’s celebrated musical score performed live by a piano quintet with soprano, Dear Esther Live reveals a touching story of love, loss and redemption.
Dear Esther blurred the lines between interactive gaming, storytelling and digital artistry when originally released by Brighton-based studio The Chinese Room (2012) and Dear Esther Live does the same again with a contemporary live performance on a cinematic scale of remarkable power and poetry.
‘A beautiful and thought-provoking piece of work. It is oil painting, poetry, eulogy and video game all at once. And it’s never less than fascinating.’ The Telegraph
