THROUGH YOU

YOU ARE MY LOVER THROUGH A LIFETIME. 

This athletically vibrant and sensual VR experience explores love across a lifetime. Using dance to inhabit a common mortal story of love born, lived, lost, burned, and seemingly gone forever, Through You is a live-action VR richly infused with an atmosphere of passion. Dancers Joanna Kotze and Marni Thomas Wood, along with actor Amari Cheatom, take us through the coursing periods of time, from the 1970s to 2046 and beyond, where the question is harbored, “Can love be found again?"

Co-directed with Saschka Unseld
Produced by Shruti Ganguly and Elliott Whitton
Cinematography by Dagmar Weaver-Madsen
Composed by Mark degli Antoni
Starring Amari Cheatom, Joanna Kotze, and Marni Wood
