AN IMMERSIVE AND COLLABORATIVE SHOW BY COMPAGNIE GILLES JOBIN
Born during the pandemic, Virtual Crossings was imagined in order to enable movement artists and digital artists to connect remotely and meet in the same virtual space without the constraints of geographical borders, and to collaborate in real time despite being separated by thousands of kilometers. A first edition took place in 2020 in Buenos Aires, then in 2021 in Melbourne.Compagnie Gilles Jobin proposes Virtual Crossings Geneva, a unique collaboration of artists from Geneva working with movement, digital art and music. Gathered specifically for the Plaza, this group proposes an immersive digital installation in real time. Thanks to a sophisticated motion capture device installed in the center of the theater, the dancers’ avatars interact live on the walls and screens of the Plaza. Spectators are in the heart of an immersive installation where space, movement, digital image and music interact continuously.
Duration 1 h 30′
DIGITAL PERFORMANCE IN REAL TIME
Cosmogony is a live performance featuring three dancers whose movements are captured live in the studio of Compagnie Gilles Jobin in Geneva and projected in real time in the Plaza. The dancers’ bodies and their avatars are entangled like particles in a quantum state, performing strange actions at a distance. The dancers act as if they were the puppeteers of their own bodies, animating their avatars in real time and composing the cosmogony of a suspended world from a distance.
In a cosmic space or in the heart of a virtual city, the bodies free themselves from the laws of physics on the analogical sounds of the Swiss band Tar Pond, offering to the public a bewitching journey beyond reality.
