SiNaPS It is an immersive performative installation for unconventional spaces, which invites the audience to the combination between Virtual Reality and live performance by KONIC.
SiNaPS is a phygital (articulation of the physical and digital world) narrative project , which dialogues between the real and the virtual. It refers to the connections necessary to perform a complex process. Three acting bodies share a physical/stage space from which they jointly build sonovisual interactions in the digital world. The connection between the three characters is established by means of a generative Virtual Reality device and a motion capture system that will allow them to create immersive visual and sound environments live. Each performer has a differentiated and complementary role to jointly articulate shared and collaborative creative actions that take shape in the virtual environment.
Their roles are:
‘Sensorized body’: a performer with movement sensors modifies the virtual, visual and sound environment.
‘Visualizer’: she wears VR glasses, navigates the virtual world and shows us different views of the environment, projected. She has an immersive vision.
‘Modifier’: she wears VR goggles, is immersed in the same environment as Visualizer, but has options that allow her to associate different types of interaction to the sensible body.
‘Re-actant’: generative Virtual Reality device: a generative audio and image engine with intelligent agents that, once stimulated, have their own course.
The public presentation has two possible formats:
As a participatory installation-performance: it is carried out in six eight-minute sections, allowing up to twelve people from the public to take the role of ‘Visualizer’ or ‘Modifier’
As a stage format of a single 30-minute session, in which the performers create the live performance for an audience that will be able to enjoy the creative experience as an observer of the interactive work.
