VIRTUAL REALITY LAB

VIRTUAL REALITY LAB WITH GORKI GLASER-MÜLLER AND CYNTIA BOTELLO IN COLLABORATION WITH STOCKHOLMS DRAMATISKA HÖGSKOLA

23th – 27th APRIL 2019

Gorki Glaser-Müller is a director and video artist with a background as an actor. He has made a number of award-winning short films and the feature film En gång om året, with Gunilla Röör. After examining video art and multiple projections in the physical room he has begun to explore so-called immersive storytelling with dance as the main focus. He has filmed Göteborgs Operans Danskompaniet’s Skid by Danien Jalet in VR which will be one part of the Opera’s own dance festival in the summer of 2019. Gorki’s artistic practice mix differently disciplines with deconstructions of the dance as one of the methods.

Cyntia Botello is a dancer / choreographer and dance filmmaker. Some of her dance films have exhibited in international dance film festivals in America and Europe. She is the manager and artistic leader at the ScreenDance Festival. She is interested in exploring screendance in VR and how she can develop choreography using VR. The questions she wants to work with are what means to create choreography in a VR and what it does for the viewer / participant. Immersive video is perfect for dance art. The ability to place the audience and get it to experiencing rather than watching dance is unique. The VR medium is by definition innovative and that there is much to discover.

Virtual Reality Lab the participants will get an introduction to this revolutionary medium and focus on filming in VR. We will experiment with choreographic ideas and reflect on what happens when using a 360 camera. Relationship camera, dancer and audience. Picture and sound interact in a different way than traditional film, come and discover how!
