“Beyond the Firmament” challenges the environmental limits by creating a space differs from the conventional forms of performing arts through the interactivity between human and technology. Co-creating with digital technology, the artists explore the boundaries and the unknown possibilities of inter-disciplinary performances.
Harnessing the interplay of sound, light and interactive devices, an immersive school tour demonstration performance with technology that transcends the sensational experiences
Curated by new media artist Keith Lam, the demonstration performance, “Beyond the Firmament”, is a co-creation by three emerging young new media artists - Lazarus Chan, Fung Wing-lam (Cat) and Seth Hon. Specialising in distinct types of media - lights, sounds and interactive projections, they validate the possibilities of the incorporation of technology and performing arts. Through converging computer coding with multiple forms of media, three artists stimulate manifold sensations of the student audiences by turning school halls into an immersive performance space.
Led by movement artist Yan Cheng, audiences are taken to a journey of exploration in a firmament. Curious about everything beyond the zenith, Yan wanders around to search for more. The entire space changes abruptly that triggers a wrestle between human and technology. Joining the performance occasionally, our musical artist, Ian Tang, improvises to create unique sound effects that serve up an intriguingly immersive space to the crowd.
The performance, of which human, art and technology intertwine, breakthrough the traditional form of performing arts. In this show, audiences are not merely audiences, a stage is not only a stage.
