How often do you allow yourself to play? We imagine not often enough.
Playscape: How to Build A Galaxy is an immersive performance installation performed by dancers or played with by participants that combines dance, motion capture technology and visuals to open up new possibilities for physical, social and digital connection between people. Interacting with projected celestial graphics whilst wearing motion capture suits beneath a scrim stimulating the sky, participants work together to build a shared universe.
Witness the journey of dance, play and interaction where we discover new ways of sharing space and trusting our imaginations.
Developed by Choreographer Katie Dale-Everett (UK) and Technologists Erin Cuevas, Matthew Conway and Wahei Lam (US) who were brought together by Goldsmith’s Mocap Streamer Virtual Residency (2022) this work celebrates curiosity and exchange.
