Re: Imagination… Welcome to Wonderland

28th March 2021 4 - 7pm

 

We are excited to announce our upcoming exciting interactive virtual show Re: Imagination… Welcome to Wonderland.  This show has grown out of our ‘eMotion – when dance and technology collide’ project (initiated in 2019).  The aim for this project was to use technology in new and innovative ways to create, perform and share dance experiences. We were all set to welcome audiences to our dance and technology festival in May 2020 but unfortunately, due to the Covid pandemic, we had to cancel this event.  Instead, our dancers, staff and volunteers have been working hard to bring a virtual performance with interactive and immersive elements into your homes!

More information

Step into a world of new imaginings as Magpie Dance take you down the rabbit hole for a brand-new interactive dance and technology performance.

Join us as we revisit contemporary dance pieces from renowned choreographers; explore Alice in Wonderland with a Magpie twist; and show you how dance and technology collide. This fun and fully interactive performance will even give you the chance to get up and boogie learning some moves from our wonderful dancers, as well as a very quirky tea party lead by the Mad Hatter themselves!

A new way to experience dance…

Since launching our ‘eMotion – when dance and technology collide’ project in 2019, we have been exploring new links between dance and technology. We’ve experimented with all sorts of artists, software and gadgets to find a new relationship between the two seemingly different entities; we’re thrilled to present our latest explorations in this performance.

For a fully interactive experience, we have created an immersive interactive programme to accompany the onscreen performance. The programme is full of QR codes, virtual reality experiences, 3D videos and mini holograms (that you will be able to see in your home!). The programme comes with all of the interactive equipment needed; virtual reality headset, hologram pyramid and 3D glasses.
