Live dancers and virtual video performers work together to create a narrative that reflects how we can passively walk, struggle to balance and inevitably fall into rituals throughout life. By using technology and choreography in conjunction this way, the installation aims to disrupt the rituals of the traditional theatrical experience.

The installation will also include other dance performances in a virtual experience. Captured using 360-degree immersive video this unique meta experience puts the audience participant at the centre of two other dance and technology works using iPads. The user can direct an alternative perspective of how performances can be experienced and presented.

These works are the results of a number of collaborative projects working with LJMU Dance Staff , Screen School staff & LJMU BA & MA Dance Students.
