Cie Gilles Jobin and Artanim (Switzerland)

Playing in over 20 cities, this one-of-a-kind virtual dance piece now lands in Singapore!

In VR_I, you and four other viewers are immersed in a virtual environment. With a VR headset and your movements tracked with an optical motion capture system, see your own body in the shape of an avatar while you physically move in the virtual environment. The performance embeds you within a contemporary dance piece, where you can watch from any point of view as the dancers evolve, as if you were an actor on a stage.

Immersive and contemplative, this unique installation is a fascinating exploration of cutting-edge imaging technologies with artistic expressions of contemporary dance and not-to-be-missed!
