Origin of O explores the many incarnations of spirituality and where it fits in the digital realm of our times.
Incorporating resonant cymatic frequencies and shades of colours attuned to trigger specific chakras, The Digital Shamans in collaboration with TaikOz, create an immersive experience with electronic body triggers, ECG heart monitors, and integrated visuals, taking the audience on a digital ayahuasca journey for the mind, body & soul.
Origin of O is exclusive to the Burnie Arts and Function Centre and will not be seen anywhere else in Tasmania in 2015. Don’t miss it!
