Immersive XR Theatre
As our technologies increase in ambition and scope, they present an equally increasing friction to the world around us. How, then, might we use our digital spaces as platforms to address the urgencies of our natural ones?
"Animate“ is an intimately immersive and uncanny experience created by Chris Salter with artistic production from Remco Schuurbiers in close collaboration with Timothy Thomasson, Pierrick Uro, Maxime Gordon, and Puneet Jain. With a sound world configured by Sam Slater, musical contributions by Caterina Barbieri, and Limpe Fuchs, choreography from Angelique Willkie, situated in a scenography by Florence To, including infrasonics by Stefanie Egedy, and spatial audio components produced in collaboration with MONOM/4DSOUND by William Russel, Maxime Gordon, Tilo von Ketelhodt, Seyhryar Ahmad, and Stefanie Egedy.
