VR Short: Ego Cure

360 degree dance film

“EGO CURE”, by Synes Elischka, is a narrative virtual reality short film following a contemporary dance choreographer’s struggle to create a contemporary masterpiece, while facing a group of disinterested dancers, her unpleasant producer and the otherworldly curator – and simultaneously facing her own inner demons.

The film is set in a world where the perception of art as a product has come to its logical technological conclusion: if the artist is unable or unwilling to provide a commissioned art piece, the investor has the right to extract it from their unconscious mind – using the EGO CURE device.
