NEW SPACES, TECHNOLOGY AND DANCE

LJMU John Lennon Building
Johnson Foundation Auditorium
This new media projection installation will be interspersed with live interdisciplinary dance performances throughout the evening. By using technology and choreography in conjunction this way, the installation aims to disrupt the rituals of the traditional theatrical experience. Live dancers and virtual video performers work together to create a narrative that reflects how we can passively walk, struggle to balance and inevitably fall into rituals throughout life.
The installation will also include other dance performances in a virtual experience. Captured using 360-degree immersive video this unique meta experience puts the audience participant at the centre of two other dance and technology works . The user can direct an alternative perspective of how performances can be experienced and presented.
These works are the results of a number of collaborative projects working with LJMU Dance Staff , Screen School staff & LJMU BA & MA Dance Students.
