This is the ZU-UK (performance & digital arts company) website page on performance project, 'Goodnight, Sleep Tight'. 'Goodnight, Sleep Tight' is the result of research conducted by Prof. Jorge Lopes Ramos in collaboration with ZU-UK Artistic Director Persis-Jadé Maravala. 'Goodnight, Sleep Tight' is a performance exploring intimacy and childhood, merging VR input with live, physical performer-participant interaction, and a desire to understand human loneliness through the medium of touch. It was a disabled-led project where audiences are put to bed by a highly skilled facilitator, who synchronises touch in real life (skin-to-skin) with the movements of a motherly figure they see in their VR headset. Described as "mind blowing digital/physical VR creativity" by BAFTA winner Catherine Allen, CEO of Limina Immersive, ZU-UK's 'Goodnight, Sleep Tight' provides an example of how Unity can be successfully used as a synching platform for audience and performer.
