Rosario Dawson To Narrate Extended Reality Experience Soul Paint

soul-paintHatsumi and Monobanda and announced today that Award-winning actress, activist, designer, and producer, Rosario Dawson, will narrate the SXSW festival-bound extended reality reality project, Soul Paint. Debuting on Quest 2, the experience merges art and science to illustrate the infinite and complex networks of emotion and experience that live within all of us. 

Participants will embark on a journey of personal exploration, voiced by Dawson, as they identify and convey the sensations and emotions of their bodies through body mapping, 3D drawing and movement. The result is a visual representation of those sensations, providing a transformative new way to communicate human experiences that are often indescribable. 

“Soul Paint was inspired by my own experience of grief. Whilst seeking support for my own challenges with mental health, I lacked the words to describe my feelings and wanted to find new ways to be understood and understand others around me. Body mapping as a therapeutic process is a fascinating way to explore emotional and sensory experiences within the body. Being able to translate it into an immersive environment has enabled us to expand its potential as a creative experience that can empower people to tell stories in powerful new ways. We are so excited to see how people experience Soul Paint and what stories will emerge,” said director Sarah Ticho.
