YOU-TOPIA – meet the power in you
I haven’t seen anything like this before!
In You-Topia a magic world unfolds where Mortal Kombat meets Swan Lake and the mind-blowing visual effects perfectly match the movements of the dancer. The new media artist moves the huge digital hands live and plays with the heroin like a puppet, creating an exceptional duet between the two of them.
It started with romance but turned to a battle. Our heroin is asked for a dance however finds herself in a situation where she has to fight in order to find her way out. Due to struggling she understands: she has to be the master of her own life.
This spectacular piece of the award winning BANDART Productions is talking about power. The protagonist of the live new media and dance performance is the citizen who is at times forced to play a game where she is imposed to execute different roles. Finally finds her self-awareness and starts to create a whole new world around herself. The shorter version of this piece was commissioned by the World Forum for Democracy and was premiered in the Council of Europe in November 2014.
