From The Light Of The Fire, Our Dancing ShadowsProjects / Available for touring
A Kaleider Production, written and directed by Seth Honnor with Andy Wood and All Seeing Eye.
Our Dancing Shadows explores two sides of the same experience, one in VR and the other watching on. Our Dancing Shadows uses the latest VR technology to enable people to collaborate in the same virtual world at once, untethered and outside.
You can choose to watch the dancers and/or be a dancer yourself. If you choose to dance, you’ll take to the stage wearing a VR headset. You do not need to have experienced VR before in order to be a dancer, or have any experience of dance. It is not a competitive environment. If you choose to be a dancer in the VR experience you will find yourself guided through a gentle, poetic VR world.
Our Dancing Shadows is a Kaleider production, redeveloped for Arts by the Sea Festival, September 2018 in Bournemouth.
Our Dancing Shadows was first commissioned by Watershed’s Pervasive Media Studio for Layered Realities Weekend at Millennium Square in Bristol, 17th-18th March 2018.
They asked artists, researchers and creatives to produce bold new works which explore the potential of 5G through a series of free experimental events, talks, and demonstrations.
Layered Realities was produced by Watershed on behalf of the Smart Internet Lab, University of Bristol. Smart Internet Lab has secured funds to establish ‘5GUK Test Networks’ a national asset, funded by the UK Government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) ‘5GUK Test Networks’.
The Layered Realities weekend, 5G showcase brought together the University of Bristol’s Smart Internet Lab and Watershed, We The Curious, BT, Nokia, Zeetta, Cambridge Communications Systems, PureLiFi and BiO.
