It’s 2018, a police officer arrives at Meera’s coral laboratory. Meera is interrogated about Ashleigh Richardson, a 13-year-old girl who went missing in 1995.
It’s 1995, and Meera is eleven. It’s her first sleepover with her best friends, Lily and Shaun. Cassette recordings from the radio and Sega Mega Drive distract them from theories about Ashleigh’s disappearance. Outside, on the Great Barrier Reef, police divers are on a search- and-rescue mission by torchlight.
At the crossroads of contemporary performance and cutting-edge tech, Frogman is a coming-of-age thriller integrating virtual reality with live performance from award-winning UK company curious directive, and developed with school children across Brisbane. Audiences experience the 1995 storyline in a 360 degree VR environment. Frogman will sweep you up in its wake.
