Polychoros by Ariathney Coyne, Vahid Ghaderi and Georgios Tsampounaris takes the audience on a personal journey, going through the five stages of needs in order to achieve self-actualization. Here, the human dancer in physical space merges with a performer in virtual space, the immersive projection surface of Deep Space 8K. The performative duet unites the supposedly contradictory nature of their existence. The expressive dance performance was part of the Night Performances during the Futurelab Day of the Ars Electronica Festival 2022.
