Live video recording and projection onstage: The internet as a means to communicate and exchange
Active involvement of the spectator in determining the content of the show.
The Art of Circus is being reassessed.
RESET debriefs our vision of an isolated world in order to provoke the meeting of Man, Art and Technology.
RESET is a contemporary circus production that explores new forms of circus practices while integrating new technologies and other complementary artistic disciplines. Computers are used to mix music while smart phones take photos and film the performances. These images are instantaneously projected via social networks onto the screens onstage. Artists and Audience interact throughout the show via a “twitter” account projected onto the set. RESET is a really different kind of show, an experience proposed by the New Generation that transcends traditional boundaries of age and culture.
