Cinedans VRLab #inalab

For the third time in a row, Cinedans is organizing the Cinedans VRLab. From 20-26 of June, three international makers experiment with dance, movement, and the body in a virtual environment. What does physicality mean in a world that is not real but does feel real?

In the A Lab Playground, directly opposite Eye, the makers (groups) each work on their own research. Cinedans provides coaching in the areas of technology, design, and content. Cinedans brings together Joris Weijdom, VR-expert, en Anouk Keizer and Ineke van der Ham,neuropsychologists, for a lecture on embodiment, presence, and the creation of illusion in the virtual environment. Besides the lecture, the VRLab will be holding an open house on 25 and 26 June. Doors will be open to the Cinedans audience. Meet the makers, learn about their research and be part of their experiments!

Participants of Cinedans VRLab '22 are:Vesna Petresin (SI), Margherita Landi (IT) and the Blies Brothers (Nicolas Blies and StéphaneHueber-Blies) (FR). The Cinedans VRLab has been made possible thanks to the support of the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, the Stimuleringsfonds and the VRDays.

Cinedans VRLab is part of Cinedans FEST.
