Cinedans LAB follows the latest developments in the field of new media and innovative presentations in dance. Virtual Reality is a technique that makers like to experiment with. Intrigued by the physical component of VR, they design work that moves between film and performance.
How can VR be used in a meaningful way, and how does a work become an immersive experience? How does technology contribute to this experience? From 5 to 10 March, Cinedans organises an intensive VRLab in collaboration with BeamSystems' BeamLab. For a period of ten days, three makers are given the opportunity to research the meaning and value of VR for the personal projects on the basis of their individual research questions. The Lab is open to the public during the festival. The participants will present their work-in-progress and test their findings on the uninhibited spectator. You’re invited to experience the results.
Part of the VRLab is the presentation of Momentum: A triptych wherein every film a couple of a different age - between 20 to 70 years - is shown. In quiet, slow movements, the two constantly try to relate to each other, to the light source and the immeasurable space around them. The placement of the camera and how the bodies interact with it create a distorted image of the body, offering viewers an alternative reality.
This programme is free for We Are Public members on Saturday 9 March.
