Celestial Motion II

Alexander Whitley Dance Company
March 22, 2019-Present

undefined

Produced by The Guardian and adapted for VIVE by Alexander Whitley Dance Company and Fenyce , with support from HTC VIVE Arts and Arts Council England, Celestial Motion II is shared a VR experience that transports you and a friend to an alternate universe where you are joined by a virtual cast of world-class dancers on a thrilling journey through the stars to the sun. Using HTC VIVE motion tracking technology to playfully recreate your body, this thrilling experience immerses you in a stunning visual environment inspired by the dynamic world of solar physics. 

“Celestial Motion II is a big step forward in my exploration of the movement capabilities of virtual reality. As a choreographer I’m fascinated by tools that are becoming available through VR to visualize human movement in previously unimagined ways. HTC VIVE’s technology has enabled us to draw users closer in to the world of dance than ever before, providing a richly embodied experience and showing how this powerful platform is opening up fascinating possibilities for the art form. I’m also really excited about this being a social experience where two people can explore the virtual world together, which I hope will provoke more conversation about how we navigate experiences and relate to one another through movement.” — Alexander Whitley

Based on 8 Minutes by Alexander Whitley Dance Company, which was an original commission by London’s renowned Sadler's Wells Theatre, and a sequel to the well-received Celestial Motion , this ten–minute virtual performance debuted at the Watermans Art Centre in London on Friday, March 22, 2019.
