The New Body vr

Interactive virtual reality dance installation

If the laws of physics and anatomy of the human body don’t apply in a new world, which possibilities would arise for choreography? In this first experiment Studio APVIS collaborates with choreographer Jack Timmermans (De Stilte) and explores the collaboration between animator and choreographer. Also, we question the role of the visitor and interaction.

A new vocabulair is created, for both choreographer and animator.

With a motion capture suit two dancing bodies were digitalized and by using the HTC vive, the visitor is able to build its own body. When the music stops, the body collapses into pieces. The performance exits only once, shown to one set of eyes. An intimate experience in which the dancer surrounds you and despite it being a sole digital presence, it can become rather intimidating at times.

Installation The New Body vr is the first experiment for our research for the cross over with virtual reality and dance. This is not yet an answer or final work. It gives us a glimp on the possibilities and the meaning of new tools in virtual reality.

Duration: circa seven minutes
