Eight, a multimedia performance
A cross-genre experiment with well-hidden tech behind the scenes
Moscow, Russia
Characters in the limelight, tech in the backdrop
Dreamlaser is a company that's doing laser shows, 3D mapping, video installations and other kinds of visually impressive work. We were invited to present their tech expertise without focusing too much on the tech side itself.
We wanted to wrap the laser tech into a simple, relatable, human story, and this led us to a story of two people and their relationship — told through music and scenography. The resulting multimedia performance put the characters in the limelight, while letting the technology to act merely as a backdrop — and not the other way around.
