its audience to Walk into Space
IN January 2017, international dance
company IJAD launched its pioneering digital platform and theatre space - Open
Online Theatre. To mark the occasion, they will be performing the world premiere
of 'Walk into Space' that is an interactive, dynamic performance exploring the
concept of gravity and the wonders of the universe.
Occurring across 3 days at FACT, in
Liverpool, and set against a backdrop
of views of space, taken via satellite telescope, Walk into Space turns the
performance space, the dancers, and the audience into stars, planets and
The event also sees the public launch of IJAD’s creative digital platform, Open
Online Theatre. The brainchild of IJAD’s Artistic Director Joumana Mourad, Open
Online Theatre fuses digital technology and sensography. In doing so, she hopes
to revolutionise not only our notions of performance but also the relationship
between artist and audience.
Open Online Theatre gives the audience a unique way of co-creating with
performers and builds on IJAD’s ongoing mission to embed the audience in the
creative process; to take them on a journey from inspiration to creation where
they see the evolution from thought to incarnation.
In the run up to the show, IJAD is asking audiences to directly influence the
creative process by sharing scientific ideas and creative thoughts. The audience
is invited to interact using the hashtag #OrbitsProcess, both online and in
person during the performance.
The show will be held over the 23 January and 24 January 2017, at 2pm and 7pm.
