On July the 30th, 8pm (UTC), all the doors in a digital, interactive 3D environment will open for anyone with an interest for theatre, music, film, and art. This project was created by Beets.
The event is called “Here and Now”, an immersive NFT experience built specifically on the most popular NFT platform in the world Hic Et Nunc (H=N).
You will be able to enter a 3D interactive environment unlike any other on the blockchain: Enter the world of curated live experiences that only happen in the Here and Now.
Audiences that enter a section of the Here and Now called “the gallery maze” will experience debut and existing work from Sutu, Giant Swan, Mumu Moon, 4th Perspective, Marissa Noanna accompanied by exclusive music from the supremely talented Aston Archer. NFTs in the gallery will be for sale.
In another section of the 3D environment, visitors can witness live NFT experiences which will be projected there.
Laurence Fuller will be performing a poem live into a new NFT piece, which will be exclusively available for audience members for a limited time only.
To climax the evening, Beets will be creating a live film experience: a film that is shot, performed, edited, and composed live for an online audience that watches the film as it is created in real-time.
Beets is considered a pioneer in live film experiences and is dedicated to push the medium as far as it can go.
The subject of the live film that will be created in the Here and Now performance, is an ambitious dance that’s performed, shot, and edited in real-time with dancers around the world from Spain to India, everything done live.
Each of these experiences will be available to collect after they have been experienced and priority will be given to those who were at the event.
“My goal is to create live events that go beyond the traditional gallery, by creating immersive experiences that blend theatre, music, film, and art in an event that has to be witnessed live and in the moment.” – Beets
To get full access to the event, visitors will need to buy a ticket. Tickets bought before the 28th, will cost 3 XTZ (Early Bird), and from the 28th, tickets will cost 6 XTZ.
Once the event is live, these tickets can be burned, at which point the full experience automatically unlocks.
As a bonus, you will receive an NFT which will be transferred to you: a unique 1/1 that is generated from your wallet address, and created by rising generative artist @shvembldr.
Once you’ve burnt your coin, go back to the experience, the theatre door will unlock and you can see what your NFT looks like.
One of Michael Beet’s critically acclaimed live feature film experiences (Premiered at Raindance) will be available to watch as well. This is a bonus feature available before the 30th.
To get tickets, you can visit Here and Now and get it inside the experience, which is already partly open for visitors, or directly on Hicetnunc here.
