AΦE is a physical theatre company founded by Aoi Nakamura and Esteban Formi, who live in the UK. Their work utilises technology that is not bound by the traditional concept of performing arts, and has been highly acclaimed mainly in Europe.

AΦE's long-awaited masterpiece WHIST is a work inspired by psychiatrists Freud and Shuji Terayama. Participants wear VR goggles and headphones to experience 360-degree images, going back and forth between virtual and real, augmented reality. So what's behind your "unconscious" choice?
