performative installation

A performative installation in VR, offers a limited number of participants in the presence – 4-6 people per session – a totally immersive experience, lasting about 15/20 minutes, within which they will be able to interact with a remote dancer to develop a contact dance in virtual form.

The avatars of the participants and the performer will be able to use their hands with the same articulation and sensitivity as natural persons.

Their choreographic relationship will activate an absolutely real experience in the VR context, allowing you to experience an authentic sensation of contact between bodies. Virtual Reality offers an unusual space / time condition and those who participate in it are placed at the center of a unique physical experience, which involves all the senses and in which it is possible to perceive and perceive the presence of others, experiencing a new dimension that opens up to reflections. on the limits and potential of the virtual. .
