Acqua Alta traces the odyssey of a man and a woman facing the rising waters, among storms, ink seas, breaking waves and jellyfish.
This interactive virtual reality installation tells the story of a woman, a man, a house. A daily routine, absurd and filled with discrepancies. But one wet rainy day, their life is turned upside down: the rising waters drown their home in an ink-coloured sea. It tells the tale of a disaster, unique and universal. It tells of losing and searching. It tells of the fear of the bizarre and otherness, and how to tame it.
Location: Summerhall/ Dean's Office
Looking through a tablet or a smartphone, the ten double-pages of a paper pop-up book become the stage for a dance performance – thanks to a custom-made augmented reality application. In a simple graphic stroke in black and white, ink drawings and white folded paper come together to reveal the virtual life of dancing miniature beings and their dive into the imaginary realms of water.
Claire Bardainne is a visual artist and scenographer, Adrien Mondot is a computer scientist and juggler. Together, they create poetic and critically acclaimed works in which new technologies materialize what is happening beyond the space and temporality of the stage.
Audiences will receive instructions to download the app to their smartphone, tablet or similar device. A tablet will be available at Summerhall for those without access to a device.
