Phygital D: Creating New Dimensions of Dance Experience
Performances, installations, and digital and virtual experiences highlighting new dimensions of dance in Phygital D
At September and October 2022, Freespace presents a programme of performances and multimedia installations that blend dance, live physical performance, film, motion capture and virtual reality experiences. Showcasing multimedia movement artists from Hong Kong and Asia, the programme features new creations that transport the audience through a variety of physical and virtual dance worlds.
Avant-garde Japanese artist Hiroaki Umeda presents the full-length performance indivisible substance – the final iteration of the work-in-progress virtual experience presented by Freespace in 2020 and 2021, along with three related installation works. City Contemporary Dance Company’s Zelia ZZ Tan invites the audience to be part of an immersive motion-captured dance experience with real and virtual performers. Hong Kong film director Tsang Tsui-shan captures the intimate creative world of dance duo Ix Wong Thien-pau (Malaysia) and Aaron Khek Ah-hock (Singapore) through a VR installation experience. Chinese artist Lu Yang, whose high-energy, anime-inspired work has attracted much attention in the contemporary new media art world, premieres a real-time collaboration between dancers and virtual avatars in Hong Kong and Sydney. And Hong Kong artist Chan Wai-lok redefines dance and performance through an interactive digital journey.
