The third performance of Evolution (Virtual Edition) features ethereal music, lighting and movement, alongside layered videos to create a dreamlike effect. Exploring our experiences of memory, déjà vu and dreams, this performance evokes feelings of freedom and floating on an open ocean as a means to transport audiences to a unique dreamscape.
Evolution is a collaborative design laboratory facilitating cutting-edge interdisciplinary experimentation in dance performance traditionally performed each spring in the B. Iden Payne Theatre at The University of Texas at Austin. This year, we’re thrilled to present this showcase virtually, as choreographers from the Department of Theatre and Dance join forces with concert and event lighting designers and composers from the School of Design and Creative Technologies to push the physical and virtual boundaries of the definition of contemporary performance.
