Living Zoroastrianism

November 15 - November 24

This unique interactive exhibition engages the public in the Virtual Reality (VR) experience of a 3,000 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 in Mumbai 2017 with cutting edge spherical video technology. Visitors can also experience contemporary Zoroastrian Iran via the digitised oral testimony of over 300 interviewees. Displays of manuscripts, costumes, paintings and artefacts provide additional information about this ancient religion.

This event is open between 10:30am and 5:00pm.
