Fugue VR is a variation based on the myth of Sisyphus. It is the result of a close collaboration between the dancer and choreographer Yoann Bourgeois, and the film director Michel Reilhac.
This diptych composed of a VR movie in Virtual reality, and of a mixed reality experience, invites the user to discover a re-creation of Yoann Bourgeois’s dance piece: Fugue Trampoline, on a music by Philip Glass.
Conceived for 10 participants et 2 dancers-mediators with Gear VR headsets, the mixed reality collective experience is an experimental and sensorial trip within the universe of the dance piece Fugue Trampoline that Yoann Bourgeois likes to describe as an “existential vertigo game“.
Yoann Bourgeois is an acrobat, actor, juggler and dancer but above all he is a player, a performer. He revisits the fundamentals of acrobatics around the notions of imbalances and impulses. In 2010 he founded his company. Since January 2016 he is co-director of the CCN2 – Centre chorégraphique national de Grenoble.
