No Reality Now by Vincent Dupont and Charles Ayats.
As part of Ministry of Culture’s CHIMERES scheme and in co-operation with the Lieu Unique venue in Nantes, the TNG – CDN theatre in Lyon has for three years been supporting the No Reality Now project by choreographer Vincent Dupont and VR designer Charles Ayats.
No Reality Now is a stage project combining virtual reality and contemporary dance, drawing on Vincent Dupont’s piece Souffles (2010). Three dancers, some of whom are fitted with sensors, move on stage and the spectators, wearing VR headsets, can navigate between virtual and real performances.
The theatre and company are showing end-of-residency performances on 28 and 29 May at Les Ateliers Presqu’île, 5 rue du Petit David, Lyon 2
