Inspired by the author Julio Cortázar, Low Air presents an innovative live dance installation which connects both visual and performing arts.
The performance ‘Game Over’ revolves around game perspective, inviting audience to witness the collision of reality and dreams. Spectator feels as in particular situation, considers relationship with others and themselves. Subtle feelings interfere with fiction and magic, while becoming inevitable element of movement and sight.
Cortázar has this magical realism which inspired artists’ imaginations for a while. Writer's stories particularly vivid and they have become a map for motion and choreography, along with the possible storyline for the dreams and reality.
