in collaboration with the Immersive Cinema Course of the Politecnico di Torino (Cinema and Media Engineering)

Addressed to

students of the interdisciplinary laboratory of Prof. Alessandro Pontremoli (History of Dance). DAMS – University of Turin (total 12)


The workshop includes exploration and experimentation around the double process of remediation and transformation that is triggered in the encounter / comparison between dance and 360 ° immersive cinema.

The frontal point of view of the live show is replaced with a central, total and semi-interactive vision that completely modifies the perception and enjoyment of the work and the dancing bodies.

Using this open and experimental approach, a short immersive 360 ​​° video will be created based on a new language and usable through wireless devices for virtual reality.


a) Exploration

Relationship between body and 360 ° camera.

b) Writing

Experimentation around new forms of writing between 360 ° storyboards and choreography.

c) Video production

d) Video post-production

360 ° video editing and support.
