Cricoterie is a Virtual Reality simulation initially inspired by the theater of Tadeusz Kantor and further expanded for the present day. In the middle of the stage in an empty theater you are confronted with a looming wardrobe. Every time you close its doors, a new object appears inside. You are the director. You take the objects and arrange them on stage to see what will happen, what will happen inside of you, as you struggle with the beautiful imperfections of the physics simulation.
