multimedia book / 2022

In 2020-22, we created a multidisciplinary theatre performance that transformed the comic “Un monde en pieces” of Ulysse & Gaspard Gry from 2D to 3D.
To accompany this project we have designed an interactive book that takes its audience through sound recordings, videos, photography and text, and drops them in the chess city of New Ebony!

The shape of the book
The pages of the book contain only part of the story. It is the QR codes on the
pages that give access to the multimedia content. The QR codes are linked to videos and sound recordings that place the viewer in the middle of the story.

Welcome to New Ebony, a chess city! 

The main language of the book is Dutch with a few extracts in English
