This poetic and spellbinding tri-dimensional performance, which creates and grows before your eyes, was born out of the fruitful interaction between dance and visual hypermedia art.
After its international success and a prize in the category of Best Dance Performance at FETEN 2015 for “Whales, Stories of Giants”, Larumbe Danza now presents “Chasing Forests - Fantasies from the Forest”. This second rendition of the hypermedia dance performance trilogy “Water/Land/Air” is directed by an American guest choreographer residing in Madrid, Camille Hanson.
In this family-friendly performance, art, nature, ecology and technology come together in support of free child creativity, as well as the conservation of the forests for the physical and intellectual wellbeing of all human beings.
Sarita, a determined and imaginative girl, vehemently condemns the destruction of the forests. She therefore converts her room into a majestic and magical forest. Together with her sisters, she embarks on a fantasy journey where the young girls have to reinvent themselves as characters inspired by some of the great twentieth century adventurers. This poetic and spellbinding tri-dimensional performance, which creates and grows before your eyes, was born out of the fruitful interaction between dance and visual hypermedia art.
