CAVE, a shared virtual reality experience that transports audiences back to 10,000 BC, will debut April 24 at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.

Developed by researchers at New York University, the multi-faceted virtual reality experience focuses on Ayara, a young woman struggling to decide whether to accept her role as her tribe's only emissary to the spirit world.

CAVE was designed to challenge how audiences collectively experience immersive arts and entertainment.

The story is told using the Parallux system, a technology that allows virtual experiences to be shared by many people in the same location.

The system allows viewers to see and hear the story—as well as one another—within the same virtual environment, so they may feel as physically present in the shared world as they would when attending a live theater or concert event.
