Cosmogony: Live Digital Dance Performance

A live performance featuring three dancers who are motion captured live at Cie Gilles Jobin studio in Geneva.

Join us

Join us on May 12, 2023, for a live performance created by Geneva-based digital contemporary dance company Cie Gilles Jobin.

Created by Geneva-based digital contemporary dance company Cie Gilles Jobin, Cosmogony is a live digital performance in real time featuring three dancers motion captured live from Geneva and screened in real time remotely. The movements of the dancers are captured in Geneva, sliced up into digital ‘bits’ and sent instantaneously through the cyberspace to appear as avatars, on screen and in real time for a live audience, thousands of miles away from the company’s studio. Throughout the 30-minute experience, the dancers will be revealed in human form on-screen intermittently to give audiences a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the setting. The Program includes a live Q&A with Gilles Jobin and dancers, moderated by Weidong Yang & Daiane Lopes da Silva
