VR_I: A DANCE PIECE IN IMMERSIVE VIRTUAL REALITY by Gilles Jobin & Artanim

VR_Ii s a 100% virtual dance piece in which five spectators are immersed together and in real time in a virtual space. Immersive and contemplative, the performance invites viewers, or rather their avatars to follow their own point of view. The viewers-turned-camera move around inside the installation as protagonists of their own experience.Thanks to motion capture technology, we are now capable of reproducing dance in all its fluidity. Although the set, the environment and the dancers’ envelope are virtual, movement itself is very real. Artanim’s technology is a giant step for viewer immersion by combining real and virtual environments. Thus, the boundaries between dancer and viewer are removed and both move on the same plane, at the same time and in the same space, at the crossroads of reality and ‘virtuality’.With this unique installation, the performance addresses our perception of reality and our ability to adapt instantly to possible worlds—worlds that we accept as long as they meet certain criteria of our reality. In VR_I, viewers and dancers are subject to the same physical laws, they share the horizontal axis. The actual presence of the viewers’ bodies inside a coherent physical space allows for surprising effects of scale. Thus, as they stumble into a full-scale desert, viewers-travellers can find themselves face to face with 30-metre high dancers or later, notice tiny dancers at their feet
