Postponed to 2021
The production VR_I for immersive virtual reality offers a pioneering interactive dance and theater performance. The collaborative project between the Kulturzentrum Tempel and the ZKM | Karlsruhe, together with the Swiss ballet dancer and choreographer Gilles Jobin, searches for links between dance and media. With the help of Virtual Reality, visitors are invited into an immersive, virtual reality during an interactive dance and theater performance. This experience not only makes different landscapes and spaces perceptible virtually to the participants but also connects them with the virtual dancers. Depending on the Corona situation, the performance is planned for Spring 2021 in the Media Theater of the ZKM or in the Scenario Halle.
Virtual Reality in Contemporary Dance is supported by the UNESCO City of Media Arts Karlsruhe 2020 Project Support Program for Media Art.
