An imaginative leap to another country and a step back to the wonder of childhood. Ryan Van Winkle (poet) & Dan Gorman (sound artist) lead you on a playful, sometimes surreal, journey to a distant land in under 15 minutes. ViewMaster is more than just a performance. It is an immersive experience for an audience of one, for your eyes and ears only.

ViewMaster takes place in a specially designed set by artist Faith Eliott. You enter a child-like den reminiscent of playing in the house on rainy afternoons, before Dan and Ryan whisk you away on a unique visual-sonic-poetic journey to one of four destinations: Mecca, the River Nile, Holland or the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Dan Gorman and Ryan Van Winkle have worked together on successful audio and poetic collaborations for over a decade. Van Winkle says, ‘To me, this piece is as much about the power of play and imagination as it is a rumination about getting older, dying, nostalgia and the things we build, the things we leave behind.’
