With “Rendez-Vous” and “Here we are” the fabien prioville dance company looks at an entirely new genre for contemporary dance. In cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institut FIT St Augustin, Fabien Prioville challenges the traditional theatre space, perspectives and viewing habits of the audience.
Off the stage and into virtual reality, the company developed a new concept for the viewing of contemporary dance that can travel to any city, country or continent. Fabien Prioville’s choreography is performed and recorded by a 360°-camera in public spaces. The recorded videos will be presented to the audience at the locations through VR-glasses. VR-technology offers the audience a unique perspective on contemporary dance, and a new method of perception. It challenges the common experience of a live performance, plays with the senses of the audience and offers unknown potential for the experience of dance for choreographers, dancers and audience.
