0AR Artist talk plus Q&A

Online, -, International, United Kingdom

Saturday, June 6, 2020 - 13:00 to 14:00

Open to participants aged 16 and over.

This talk is focused on the creation process of 0AR, and the use of Augmented Reality in the Dance performance context. We will go through our creation journey, explaining how the concept evolved from Akram Khan and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's seminal work zerodegrees, which 0AR is based on.

The talk will last approximately 30 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A where you will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss with us. No prior experience is needed.

This workshop is supported by Arts Council England and is free of charge.

About 0AR

0AR is a collection of short dance works in Augmented Reality (AR) for all ages. AΦE (choreographers Aoi Nakamura and Esteban Lecoq) sought to bring the live-ness and collective theatrical experience into the work, reimagining the application of this technology. Experiencing 0AR communally via five connected devices, audiences are encouraged to explore, move around the space and interact where their actions have a unique influence on the piece.

0AR is based on seminal masterpiece zero degrees (2005), a collaboration between dancers/choreographers Akram Khan, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, sculptor Antony Gormley and composer Nitin Sawhney. Inspired by their own dual identities, Khan and Cherkaoui searched for the reference point, the source, the ‘0’ at life’s core, through polar opposites, life/death, light/dark, chaos/order.
