ichÂ² is a dance performance combined with a 360Â° projected stage. the venue we use is a tiny planetarium in Kiel where we implemented vvvv to enable us to do cool realtime visuals and play pre-rendered videos.
the whole performance is slightly a media overkill. the dancers will be able to control elements of the virtual stage and sound with the help of motion sensing techniques (cameras + body sensors). but basically the whole 360Â° projection will blow your mind as it perfectly fools your brain

lot's of planetaria are shifting towards the use of video projectors and computer-generated content. while being involved in a project using such venue, we started to make a vvvv patch for such projection surface. the challenge is to combine up to six projectors to one seamless picture and distort the content according to the dome shape. the point is, once the content is straight again, you can create perfect 360 degree illusions of almost any (virtual) space.
