The Matriarx

by Julia Bruton (Germany, Canada)

Genre: Female content

The Matriarx is an immersive VR experience taking the heroine and hero into a world where matriarchal structures have endured. It is a parallel world in which people treat each other based on a different set of societal rules. This has its effect on social, economic and the political life. Family and love relationships function differently. How do you perceive yourself in a world that follows different structures? The Matriarx will open the experiencers’ horizons by raising their curiosity and by empowering them. This experience will attract everyone who is curious about societal change. Its focus lies on first timers in VR.
