Reflecting our visual era, this piece plunges the spectator into an interactive visual environment galvanized by music performed live onstage.
In this digital era, Symphonie 5.1 plunges its dancers into an interactive visual environment orchestrated by music that is performed live onstage. This intriguing universe, where reality and fiction merge together, gives way to astonishing visions: a silhouette splits in two, a face ages over time, a body pixellates until it dissolves completely. Isabelle Van Grimde questions fluctuating states of identity, the perception of the body and its evolution.
