Theta is an interactive virtual reality dance performance that blurs the boundaries between audience and performer to demonstrate how our brains’ predictive coding facilitates the appreciation of art. Through multisensory casual interaction, Theta enables audiences to discover their own preferred balance between expected and novel, and therefore to control their aesthetic experience. Multisensory attention is correlated with neural oscillations in the range of 3-8Hz, or Theta – the namesake of the piece.
