In a little under a week we begin main production on our newest fulldome dance piece. Building upon the highs and lows of last years experimental fulldome dance trilogy ‘Submergence’ we are excited to be undertaking our first 15 minute narrative driven fulldome film. Coreo Cymru and URRL are once again joining forces and will be collaborating with Earthfall to adapt their award winning dance piece into the fulldome movie ‘Pal o’ Me Heart’.
Submergence world premiere took place last weekend in the Waterfront Museum as part of Swansea Dance Days. The weather was terrible but that didn’t stop members of the public enjoying the array of dance activities on offer, including The Dance Dome.
We had amazing responses from the over 400 people who experienced the dome, in fact out of the 100 feedback forms we received 97% said they would recommend it to a friend. Not bad hey! Perhaps the immersive experience for the 3 who won’t recommend was just too much for them.
We have our last presentation for the time being at Wales Millennium Centre on Sat 14 July, between 12pm and 8pm & on Sunday 15 July, between 10am and 6pm. Other events are happening that weekend in the Oval Basin so its well worth coming down. Our Dome will be outside next to Ffresh and One Bar, its big so you can’t miss it.
Free entry every 20 minutes throughout the day.
It’s great for kids too, apart from the one or two who found it a bit strange they loved it and were totally transfix.
We will be touring next year to mainly open-air festivals so this is possibly your one opportunity to experience this amazing event.
Hope to see you there,
In two occasions we visited the Dome at IAIA in Santa Fe to preview an early edit of The Sublime. Special thanks to Ethan for making possible to review the movie in such an impressive dome. While part of the team keeps working on the other 2 movies here in New Mexico we are traveling to Wales tomorrow to work on the Dance Dome tour that starts late this month!
Tanja and I went to the Satosphere a couple of weeks ago and met Louis-Philippe. its an amazing place, and those guys are at the cutting edge of dome art. the space is so flexible and future-proof, with enough processing power to domify any video and sound in realtime, and can be set up to do 230 degrees for angled projection. they do training courses and residencies in the lab as well.
these images are almost exactly what i had in mind when designing our film….
The works of american artist Josh Sommers carve out their context, somewhere along the boundaries of landscape photography, art, mathematics, and technology. There’s a crispness to these photos, in that they appear to have been planned from the beginning instead of having an effect slapped on afterward.
The stereographic projection, in geometry, is a particular mapping (function) that projects a sphere onto a plane. The projection is defined on the entire sphere, except at one point — the projection point. It is conformal, meaning that it preserves angles. It is neither isometric nor area-preserving: that is, it preserves neither distances nor the areas of figures.
