BERTIE is a networked virtual reality experience for multiple player-performers. In an apocalyptic virtual environment, polluted by mountains o digital rubbish and populated by abandoned characters, players will have to navigate this techno-melancholic territory together, while coming to terms with notions of legacy, orphanhood and waste.
