Hakanaï is an mesmerising performance weaving together digital technology, visual arts and movement. From French company, Adrien M & Claire B, experience their Australian debut.
Energetic and performed in real time, the performance is a conversation between light, music and the body, with live animations based on physical movement modelling and an original live music score. In a delicate dance between human effort and technology, Hakanaï uses technology to a poetic effect. Inside a cube fashioned from translucent veils onto which a graphic universe is projected, a dancer takes a virtual journey into a 3D space between dreams and reality.
In Japanese “Hakanaï” denotes that which is temporary and fragile, evanescent and transient, and in this case something set between dreams and reality. This is an immersive performance exploring the fleeting nature of dreams and the fugacity of life.
Following every performance is an interactive session, Experience the Cube, where the audience can explore the installation first hand. On Fri 17 Aug, a special Q&A with the company of Adrien M & Claire B will occur following the performance.
