This unique interactive exhibition engages the public in the Virtual Reality (VR) experience of a three-thousand years old Zoroastrian ritual in which the viewer will be immersed by means of VR glasses. Originating in ancient pre-Islamic Iran, the ritual was filmed by Chouette Films in Mumbai 2017 with cutting edge spherical video technology.
Visitors can also experience contemporary Zoroastrian Iran via the digitized oral testimony of over 300 interviewees. Displays of manuscripts, costumes, paintings and artefacts provide additional information about this ancient religion.
This exhibition is held in association with the SOAS Shapoorji Pallonji Institute of Zoroastrian Studies.
