I Infinite

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
This dance installation by Tom Dale Company is a fascinating piece of work that pitches real against virtual and organic against robotic in order to find the grey areas in which these definitions blur.

Set inside an entirely white space, the audience wear long grey robes and are free to wander the space as they please. There is only one performer (Maria Olga Palliani) and the joy of this piece is to be found in the interplay between dancer, audience and the constantly changing digital projections that cover the space.

The piece looks at what happens when we treat the virtual as tangible and, as walls made of light slice through the space, the audience can’t resist putting their hands into these nonexistent boundaries as though there might be something to grab hold of.

This relationship between the performer and the projected environment is immaculate and by allowing the audience to wander, each individual is free to choose their own viewpoint and take what they want from this enchanting piece.
