Event description

Description

AΦE is an Ashford-based dance company founded in 2013 by Aoi Nakamura and Esteban Fourmi. With the vision to bring the art of dance closer to audiences, their mission is to create high-quality productions and experiences that are not bound by a stage. Driven by the power of body and movement in space, their productions are environments that allow the audience to enjoy total immersion. Each element in the performance space – the set, performers, audience, sound, objects – is part of an echoing system, carefully constructed to allow audience’s own reflection on the subject explored.

Artistic Directors Aoi and Esteban will talk about the making of their newest work, WHIST, an installation that combines 360° film with 3D sound, physical designed objects and physical theatre, where audiences becomes active participants of the journey through introduction of touch and auditory sensory and movements in space.

This talk is part of a wider talk series as part of the Practice Based Research Doctoral Training Programme run by the Institute of Creative Technologies at DeMontfort University.
