Performance & XR Virtual Reality Symposium 2022

PXR Conference, hosted by Single Thread and Electric Company Theatre, celebrates the evolution of live performance in virtual, augmented and mixed realities. Now in its 3rd year, this national event brings Canadian creators together using a virtual reality platform to share best practices for working within these new media.

We offer an experience that takes advantage of the XR medium. Wherever possible we have chosen to design the conference around the idea of ‘corridor conversation’- running into old friends and making new ones.

PXR is committed to creating space for IBPOC artists through presentation and fellowship opportunities, as well as representation in the conference’s leadership.
