More than a year after his passing, David Bowie’s final creative project is hitting the stage again. A film of the late singer’s musical play Lazarus is slated to kick off a festival in London on April 30th. Organized by the Victoria & Albert Museum, the event is part of a ten-day program of special screenings titled VHS to VR. For the first time-ever, a live recording of Lazarus will be watched via a custom headset that allows audiences to experience it in 360-degree virtual reality.
Inspired by Walter Tevis’s novel The Man Who Fell To Earth, (whose cult film adaptation Bowie starred in during the late ’70s), the play was written and scored by Bowie and Enda Walsh. In addition to it being his final conceptual project, the play also features music from Bowie’s last album, Blackstar.
Lazarus originally ran on stage in London last year, before going on to sell out theaters in New York. Directed by Ivo van Hove, the original production starred actors Michael C. Hall, Amy Lennox, and Sophie Anne Caruso.
