Hakanaï is a mesmerising performance, weaving together digital technology, visual arts and movement. From French company, Adrien M & Claire B, experience their Australian debut when it takes to the Brisbane Powerhouse stage from August 16 - 18.
Energetic and performed in real time, the performance is a conversation between light, music and the body, with live animations based on physical movement modelling and an original live music score. In a delicate dance between human effort and technology, Hakanaï uses technology to a poetic effect. Inside a cube fashioned from translucent veils onto which a graphic universe is projected, a dancer takes a virtual journey into a 3D space between dreams and reality.
In Japanese, "Hakanaï" denotes that which is temporary and fragile, evanescent and transient, and, in this case, something set between dreams and reality. This is an immersive performance exploring the fleeting nature of dreams and the fugacity of life.
Nice to know - Following the performance is an interactive session, Experience the Cube, where the audience can explore the installation first-hand. The performance is suitable for everyone, including children aged 10+.
Need to know - Some strobe lighting is including, and a lock out does apply (no entry once the show has started).
Performance times: Thu 7.30pm, Fri 7.30pm, Sat 2pm + 7.30pm
