Event description

Description

Dis_place is an innovative one-to-one site-based immersive performance created by choreographer, digital dance artist and Near Now Studio Member Kerryn Wise.

Taking place across the road from Broadway's Gallery at The People’s Hall in Nottingham, a building with a rich history, audiences are invited to experience a performance journey that moves across virtual and physical space through a combination of 360 video, volumetric graphics, immersive audio and live dance performance. Dis_place highlights the memories and histories revealed in the beautiful, decaying heritage building's architecture, creating a unique, multi-sensory immersive experience.

Meet at Broadway Gallery to be directed to the performance. Please arrive promptly at your selected time slot. Dis_place is designed for one audience member at a time, performances will last approximately 20 minutes.

Virtual Reality Experience

Broadway Gallery, 11:00AM – 7:00PM (drop in) with wine reception and artists Q&A from 6:00PM – 7:00PM.

The live performance will be complemented by a VR volumetric film experience in Broadway's Gallery. Using the Microsoft Kinect in conjunction with Depthkit, we have captured the dancers performing in parts of the People’s Hall building, creating an off-site VR experience that evokes the atmosphere of this unique place.

Q&A + wine reception

From 6:00PM – 7:00PM Kerryn Wise and Creative Technologist Ben Neal will be in the Gallery to talk about their work and answer questions about the development of the dis_place project. Join us for a chat and a glass of wine.
