Eve 3.0

Eve 3.0 is a creative process intended to serve as a case study for experimentation and research. The work is a hybrid performance of live contemporary dance and virtual reality, in which the audience participates in six narratives by dancing with both real and virtual actors, immersed in a multi-sensory experience.

The experience makes us reflect on common and widespread extreme states of consciousness such as addiction, anxiety, depression, obsession, jealousy and paranoia. Through the movements of the virtual bodies of six main characters, the stories question the recurring causes of these states of consciousness, and underline the encouragement to dialogue and sharing that the engagement of the body can generate.
