'Rhetorical Bodies' is a collaborative extended reality (XR) installation by Paula Strunden. It virtually connects two dancing bodies, translating their movements into sounds and transforming their physical forms into interactive embodied synthesizers. Through this immersive XR experience, you can explore the impact of seeing, touching, and moving your own material body in virtual reality. Rhetorical Bodies invites you to challenge the limits of bodily boundaries, navigate the fluidity of identity, and begin to delve into the realm of your virtual selves.
Experience 'Rhetorical Bodies' from July 8th until August 26th, Wednesday through Saturday 2.00pm - 5.00pm. For the experience, it is important to book a time slot via the link below. It is a collaborative installation, so we recommend you come with another person. In that case, book two spots for one time slot. On July 7th, there will be a performance by choreographer Tu Hoang in the 'Rhetorical Bodies' space.
