Entrez dans la danse

The immersive and interactive installation Entrez dans la danse by Julie Desmet Weaver, Eugénie Andrin and Claire Allante is a giant dancefloor inspired by the incredible historical episode of the 'dancing plague'.

Dive into a parallel world and discover the fascinating story of Enneline and her lover Melchior. To be swept along with them in the frenzy of the dancing plague that hit the headlines in the 16th century. In a totally immersive space, some twenty visitors are invited to take part in a real choreographic experience, thanks to an innovative interactive device. Their carnal bodies mingle with the filmed bodies of the dancers and the multiple virtual avatars generated all around them. The resulting whirlwind of images creates a fascinating vertigo, echoing the trance that takes hold of the characters. In this hybrid artistic object - led by a striking female trio - never has an imaginary space seemed so alive.
