‘What can be the nature of physical relationship when in distance?’ Together with performer Yiannis Logothetis and Virtual Reality (VR) company ImproVive, Evangelos Biskas is searching for alternative ways to develop a performance that challenges the limits of space and time. In ‘Immortal Game VR’, ImproVive creates a digital playground in VR where Yiannis joins from New York and Evangelos from Tilburg. The performers meet and interact with each other as avatars, and explore a new realm of physical possibilities that broadens their perception of movement. The audience can join the performance from anywhere in the world; they can experience it inside the Virtual Reality using their own headset at home, or they can view an online video stream providing both a real-world view of the dancers as well as a 2D view of the performance in the virtual world.
