Synopsis

Award-winning British choreographer Wayne McGregor, director of the Biennale Danza and "resident choreographer" of London's Royal Ballet, presents a choreographic diptych at Festival dei Due Mondi that takes his 30-year choreographic research to a radical new frontier.

Deepstaria harnesses the revolutionary creative potential of emerging technologies and explores the intersection and relationship between the live and digital experience. Drawing on the latest technologies of AI, acoustic research and spatial computing, McGregor brings to the stage a'opera shifting in constant transformative dialogue with itself: a choreographic evolution that coexists across multiple dimensions of experience.

"The future of the performing arts is multifaceted," McGregor says, "it lies in both the material and digital realms, where we can travel through time and space with a completely different body. We can become performers, we can become directors, we can create a path through our narratives."

For McGregor, on the other hand, the relationship between dance and the metaverse is an electrifying prospect. "This new and elusive scenario is emerging now, we are approaching the line and a new frontier is in sight."
