Synopsis

Gilles Jobin and his digital dance company created La comédie virtuelle, the digital model of la comédie, a real theatre being built in Geneva. La comédie virtuelle is a multi user social experience accessible in VR and with desktops computers. Just like a real theatre, audience, represented as avatars, can gather together to visit the building, talk to each other, interact and assist to performances in real time. After its inauguration La comédie virtuelle will function as an active XR hub for research and production for the regular digital program of la comédie in Geneva. For the Venice Biennale, Gilles Jobin and his digital dance company present a live performance in real time everyday of the festival.

Director’s Statement

In a time of sanitary crisis and travel restrictions the future of social encounter is bleak. To keep the connections, artists and audience need to explore the new digital territories. Fascinated by the ‘new immersive’ our digital dance company has dived into the digital spaces. Our aim is to be creative and build a stream of collaboration across the world. For La comédie virtuelle we wanted to create an inclusive and welcoming space for digital audience to gather, meet, interact and be amazed.
