Acclaimed immersive performance ViewMaster makes it Irish debut at The MAC in Belfast. 8th May – 10th May 2015

ViewMaster is a personal & poetic slideshow for your eyes and ears only. An imaginative leap to another country and a step back to the wonder of childhood.

Ryan Van Winkle (poet) & Dan Gorman (sound artist) lead you on a playful, sometimes surreal, journey to a distant land in under 15 minutes.

ViewMaster is more than just a performance, it is an immersive experience for an audience of one. It begins in a child-like den before whisking you away on a unique visual-sonic-poetic journey to one of four destinations; Mecca, the River Nile, Holland or the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

ViewMaster premiered at Ausform in Bristol, ran at the Forest Fringe in 2013 and was part of the Made in Scotland Showcase at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. In 2014, ViewMaster went on to have a sold out run at Poetry International at the Southbank Centre in London. This year it has been performed at the Big Burns Supper Festival and at STANZA– Scotland’s International Poetry Festival.

ViewMaster is the follow up to Ryan Van Winkle’s acclaimed 2012 Fringe success ‘Red, Like Our Room Used to Feel’, which was one of the year’s top ten best-rated shows.

Van Winkle says:

“To me, the piece is as much about the power of play and imagination as it is a rumination about getting older, dying, nostalgia and the things we build, the things we leave behind.”




‘magical, lo-fi’…‘quirkily poetic’ – Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

‘an impressively immersive experience.’ – (BBC News)

‘A jewel … an immersive, dreamlike experience.’ – (All Edinburgh Theatre)

‘A delicious quarter of an hour that feels like you’ve slipped into a quiet oasis.’ – (The List)

‘There’s a swelling melancholy, a yearning for something just out of reach, that creeps in. It’s a strangely calming

experience…You leave reminded that who you are, is often where you’ve been.’ – (Exeunt)
