About the event

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 exploring the fragility of the childhood imagination. Audiences experience the 1995 storyline in a 360 degree VR environment. At once a coming-of-age drama, supernatural thriller and pioneering integration of live performance and virtual reality, Frogman will sweep you up in its wake.

This event is being held at Square Tower, Broad Street, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO1 2ND
