Synopsis

Sublimation is an interactive virtual reality experience about dance and the freedom of creation— the metaphor of creation. In a safe environment, the visitor encounters the avatar of a dancer and learns simple and slow movements of butoh—a Japanese contemporary dance. Based on the personal performance of this choreography, related to the creative potential of life, the visitor creates a unique virtual environment. Guided by a voice over and an interactive soundscape, everyone is able to create shapes and colors. Each creation aggregates in a unique visual, but also musical composition, as every visitor is unique in the interpretation of the movements she/he will perform.

Directors’ Statement

As artists, it is important to us to explore the metaphorical notion of art—here butoh dance—and create a poetic experience with individual results for each visitor. Sublimation offers personal and emotional expression with an immediate sensorial feedback. Rather than an explanation, Sublimation offers an embodied cognitive approach.
