ELIXIR: Virtual 1:1 v2.0

Acclaimed interdisciplinary artist, psychiatrist, and law scholar Mar Hwa Wei’s newest work is ELIXIR: Virtual 1:1 v2.0, an immersive theatrical production that invites one audience member at a time into the world of ELIXIR—and gives them the chance to be one of ELIXIR’s hand-picked beta users. Featuring a scenic element conceived by two-time Tony Award-winner Christine Jones (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, American Idiot) and performed by Maggie McCaffery, ELIXIR: Virtual 1:1 v2.0 walks the line between fiction and reality, engaging you in a provocative exploration of digital authenticity, identity, and legacy.
