‘lmmerse yourself in I lnfinite – a fascinating integration of live dance and digital technology and the everyday melts away into a bravura haze of cosmic imponderables.’

About the programe
I Infinite is a new solo designed for galleries and white box spaces. Part abstract dance, part video installation, it explores the boundaries between the artificial and the real, the digital and the organic. Free to roam around the immersive digitally animated environment as they please, audiences remain in close proximity to the dancer and able to see refined movements – veering between robotic isolation and liquid fluidity – that are often missed in more traditional theatre spaces. In one section audiences become participants, their bodies interacting with the projected image through a haze of fog.
I Infinite takes inspiration from the continuous evolution of the digital world and how its constant efforts to re-create nature, however fascinating may be fundamentally flawed if it is to achieve its ultimate ambitions. The work is a mesmerizing meditation on the digital world’s quest to re-create life.
Running time of each performance is about 45 minutes without intermission
