DAZZLE A Reassembly of Bodies at VRDays / Immersive Tech week

DAZZLE: A Re-Assembly of Bodies
December 1-4 2022 DeDoelen Rotterdam
at VRDays Europe / Immersive Tech Week 

Astonishing visuals build an optical framework for a multisensory live performance. This unique project re-imagines the Dazzle Ball held at the Royal Albert Hall, London, in 1919.  Zig-zag motifs — inspired by First World War naval camouflage — are applied to costumes and set design, playing with audiences’ vision and perception. Motion capture delivers an incredible fusion of dance & immersive technology for multiple participants. DAZZLE is a multi-sensorial experience inviting audiences on a journey to perform, explore and disguise in the many realities we call ours.  

As an answer to our longing for togetherness, audiences choose to be active participants or observers as they travel through mixed realities, breaking with perceptions of art to be spatially separated or untouched by its visitors. 

After the World Premier of DAZZLE at the 79th Venice International Film Festival we are delighted to announce an exclusive showing in the Grote Zaal at the DeDoelen Theatre, Rotterdam. During VRDays Europe / Immersive Tech Week, performances will expand and be open for the public on the following days and times:

Dec 01 – Dec 04 at 3pm, 4pm, 6pm, 7pm, 8pm
