Imagine finding yourself in the middle of a theatre stage, completely immersed in a performance with the dancers. By means of the magic of a virtual reality helmet, that is now possible. In a 40-minute experience, you plunge into the heart of three emblematic works from their repertoires, adapted especially for the occasion: The Complex Simplicity of Love by Margie Gillis, Allegro Barbaro by Hélène Blackburn and 6.58 manifesto by Andrea Peña. Discover contemporary dance in a new light, a new way of experiencing the body in movement!
