Bombina Bombast is an award-winning performing arts company that utilizes virtual reality as its expressive medium. Bombina Bomast will present the original VR project Slumberland on Tuesday, March 26, launching a creative exploration in into an insomnia-driven question, “Why can’t I sleep?”

Bombina Bombast explains, “We live in an attention economy. The way we structure life and work today keeps us from sleeping. Up to 30% of people in developed countries now suffer from chronic insomnia. We are too tired to do something about a system that is profiting from our every glance or sliding finger on a screen… Slumberland is our way to try and get some rest, together with you. Because isn’t the most radical thing then, to sleep?”
