Astonishing visuals build an optical framework for a multisensory live performance & exhibition

This unique project re-imagines the Dazzle Ball held at the Royal Albert Hall, London, in 1919.  Zig-zag motifs -- inspired by First World War naval camouflage -- are applied to costumes and set design, playing with audiences' vision and perception. 
This project uses next-gen streaming motion capture and machine learning to deliver an incredible fusion of dance & immersive technology for multiple participants.  DAZZLE is a multi-sensorial experience inviting audiences on a journey to perform, explore and disguise in the many realities we call ours.  
Reality becomes fluid, and identities extend, shifting seamlessly between fashion and avatar, performance and live motion-capture, virtual and physical - a mind-bending masquerade.  As an answer to our longing for togetherness, audiences choose to be active participants or observers as they travel through mixed realities, breaking with perceptions of art to be spatially separated or untouched by its visitors.
