A#3 – MOTU offers an immersion into a choreographic virtual reality environment, where you can meet and touch life-size holograms of dancers. Invited to step in as the choreographer, the guests may orientate dancers in movements of their choice and establish an intimate dialogue with the image of those bodies coming to life through these movements only.
Until then invisible, dance enters in interaction with its environment. Expressive content gestures of visitors (firmness, softness…) transforms the responses of the holograms. These real/virtual duets arise the meaning of these moments of dance which result all unique, all different. When two real spaces are distant but connected to the art application, the immersed «spect-actors» are together on the same virtual stage. Altogether active with holograms, they establish a creative sign dialogue through the air.
Here the movements of each viewer, change and guide them toward another connected place there. A choreographic form emerges from this exchange. Finally, this co-composed virtual choreography is shared with an outside audience on a screen installed next to the choreographic space dedicated to immersion. A#3 – MOTU offers, through holograms, an exchange of immaterial information through dance and music ; an immersion into the core of the emergence of a form which such a living organism, is designed as a dynamic material updating at any time by the inter-action with the environment.
The experience ANIMO#3-MOTU (prototype VR) and A#4 -BIFACE (AR) won the “Lumière Award 2019 for the best AR content”, at Stereopsia, world immersion forum at Brussels.
These awarded art works are selected to be showcased at Cannes XR in 2020.
