Dancing into the imagination.
This is the story of two imaginary beings who travel through time, who invent their lives, dream up love stories and measure reality in a split second. A strange and funny show unfolds before your eyes at the speed of a shooting star... Imagine yourself dancing in the cosmos, swimming in a pool of words, watch a choreographed rhinoceros dance and discover a strange and yet familiar world. You will have only one desire: to know who these two mysterious characters are who have escaped from a giant's brain; to find out their extraordinary story.
Could virtual reality and simulation technologies used on a daily basis in technology industries allow us to invent a new theatrical language of the imagination? This is an important question, and the answer lies at the crossroads of art, science and technology. A team of creative engineers from Dassault Systèmes have stepped up to the challenge. In less than a year, with Marie-Claude Pietragalla and Julien Derouault, they have created a performance of a new kind, allowing us to see and feel a kind of virtual unreality, that of the imagination.
For the first time, the projections on a 200m² surface create an absorbing world which reacts in symbiosis with the dancers. Discover this magic box where "everything we dream is achievable" (Eugène Ionesco ).
