An interactive, immersive comic book experience by Marcus Joseph

Jazz Maze is an interactive, immersive comic book experience for Virtual Reality, supported by Broadway’s Near Now Ideas Fund. Created by local musician and spoken word artist Marcus Joseph.

Jazz Maze is an autobiographical British Jazz story inspired by Marcus’ journey, from growing up in the East Midlands to performing internationally. You’ll experience Jazz Maze with the aid of a Virtual Reality headset.

It brings together the compelling music and spoken word of Marcus Joseph, visual art of illustrator and animator Wumzum and theatrical imagination of immersive game developers BetaJester.
