HOYO is a collaboration to look at how that sense and magic of receiving a hug can be recreated in the realms of VR and Haptic technologies, ultimately a combined live location-based performance and virtual experience, using memories and stories of hugs gathered from two demographic groups living in Salford to form the basis of a 10-minute narrative through the magical form of theatre puppetry.
