Persona

Dance & Animation in AR (Augmented Reality) Performance 

A multidisciplinary performance combining dance, Video and animation in Augmented Reality.

The piece invites the user to observe the live performance on a screen and, through it, to meet a new layer. 

A creation that takes apart the concept of persona in a meeting between two women, the audience and the system of social expectations. 

Through a homage of paintings of women from the 18th and 19th centuries, masks are constructed and dismantled in a performance of the seen and hidden. 

 

The work was produced by the From Jaffa to Agripas Festival under the artistic direction of Sofia Krantz.
