Artist Statement:

    Double District is a six-channel stereoscopic 3D video dance installation originally conceived for the ReActor, a hexagonal stereoscopic 3D back-projection environment. A series of solo and duet scenes, specifically choreographed and performed by Teshigawara, were recorded from six vantage points, in time synchronicity and stereo 3D. The installation questions the traditional notion of stage performance, where the audience is usually restricted to the seating area and the dancers direct their performances accordingly; in Double District the observer can freely choose a point of view and experience the performance in 1:1 scale and 3D depth. For ISEA2013, Double District will be presented in iCinema’s 360-degree AVIE (Advanced Visualisation and Interaction Environment) theatre.
