Prototype: Future Rites
A co-production between choreographer Alexander Whitley, director Sandra Rodriguez and Normal Studio, Future Rites is an immersive and collaborative performance experience based on the seminal ballet 'The Rite Of Spring'. Combining real-time animation and AI, it enables anyone to join in the dance. As users interact with a constantly evolving natural world, their movements and gestures decide a crucial outcome, guiding a narrative through this celebrated work of classical music around themes of ritual, nature and sacrifice.
FUTURE RITES is part of the Future Art and Culture programme at SXSW produced by British Underground with the support of Arts Council England
