It wouldn’t be Midsumma without a good old-fashioned drag show. That being said, there’s nothing old-fashioned about this immersive virtual reality production from artists Allison Bennett, Megan Beckwith and Mark Payne. Using their combined skills in photography, digital media, choreography and animation, the trio have produced 3D scans of local drag performers. Plug in and prepare yourself. This probably isn’t exactly what the creators of the Oculus Rift had in mind — but to be honest, we don’t really care. One week only at the Testing Grounds in Southbank.
