Description

Located atNew Frontier at Kimball Art Center

Choreographer Gilles Jobin combines dance with cutting-edge virtual reality technology in this work that lets five people inhabit full-body avatars. The five people interact and communicate physically with each other as they engage a troupe of giant , and tiny, virtual dancers in various landscapes. A collaboration with New Frontier Alumni Caecilia Charbonnier and Sylvain Chagué (Real Virtuality: Immersive Explorers was showcased in 2016), this unparalleled contemporary dance experience enters unexplored and uncharted territories.

Supported by swissnex San Francisco, Dart 17, and Pro Helvetia.
