For three years, Urland researched the internet under the wings of the Theater Rotterdam Production House. The most important development of this modern era took shape in three successive performances. EXPLORER / Prometheus unleashed, the second part of this Trilogy, is a joint creation of Urland and CREW and is central to this performance.
Can complex matters like the historical explanations of the solar system be more easily understood on an “experiential” immersive base? Is it i.e. possible to collaboratively walk around in a solar system while embodying planets and making gravitational forces understood in terms of experience?
Celestial Bodies is a concept for using immersion and virtual production tools in education and arts.
In Straptrack, an immersant, (a visitor equipped with video glasses, PC and headphones), strolls through a virtual sculpture. Meryem Bayram designs and activates the geometric objects of this sculpture, while Eric Joris intervenes in different combinations with drawings and recordings via so-called Motion Capture.
Absence is a dance creation inspired by the tsunami in Japan (2011). The idea is simple: a woman and a man meet. There is a trauma. They move, they talk.
A scenic performance made by Eric Joris and writer Peter Verhelst, in collaboration with NTGent.
