Towards an Opera for VR systems in the field of conflict resolution
Current Stage 1 of 4: R and D

Imagine two people with opposing viewpoints. They might be neighbours, or from different countries, or might never have met. They immerse themselves in a virtual reality environment and reimagine each other through something never seen before – an opera they make together. They feel empathetic connections musicians can feel when they make music together.
