La Boîte

September 1st, 2000 - January 1st, 2001

Categories: VR Art


La Boîte is a networked virtual environment where visitors are invited to see short dance performances on video screens.

In the virtual dance studio, visitors can view brief performances, than try to imitate them or leave their own traces of a performance. The piece places some emphasis on classical ballet training and the importance of the geography of the classical dance studio.

This project was inspired by a decade-long friendship, and our mutual love of dance, performance and technology.
