Cosmogony

Cie Gilles Jobin (Switzerland)​

From leading contemporary dance group Cie Gilles Jobin, Cosmogony probes the possibilities of dance for the digital stage, in this large-scale real-time performance.

Geneva-based Cie Gilles Jobin has been at the forefront of contemporary dance for the digital stage. Its ground-breaking experiments with motion capture, virtual and augmented reality have fascinated audiences around the world.

Now, the company brings to Singapore a large-scale live dance work, Cosmogony. Cosmogony is a feat of the company's motion capture technology, where the data of the dancer's movements are sent through networks to be reconstructed, in real time.

Come as you wish within each 30-minute dance segment. Catch the dancers perform in real-time from Geneva - dancers will also connect their avatars in the 3D spaces on the screens to compose the cosmogony of a virtual world in suspension.

The performance is complemented by Dance Trail, an app that invites you to a self-guided augmented dance journey. Unlock surreal dance performances in the streets, in your neighbourhood, or in the palms of your hand.

Ambitious, inventive and surprising, come experience the new frontier of contemporary dance on the streets of Singapore.
