Event description

Hold new worlds in the palm of your hand …

Hip-hop dance meets gaming technology in this groundbreaking new work by Shaun Parker & Company. Conceived to engender emotional resilience in young people, IN THE ZONE features captivating new technology called AirSticks, which create live sound through movement. Developed with AirSticks co-creator, Alon Ilsar PhD, IN THE ZONE features Western Sydney hip-hop artist Libby Montilla and moves by award-winning choreographer Shaun Parker. With AirSticks technology in the hands of Libby Montilla, we enter the world of a video game through the dance forms of locking, popping, waving and body-ticking and self-triggered electronic soundscapes. IN THE ZONE takes gaming and escapism as a point of inspiration and celebrates the spectacular worlds that we can explore with technology today. It also examines the potential for loss of control through gaming, encouraging a renewed appreciation for nature. IN THE ZONE provides young audiences with the insight that they are much more in control of their own emotional responses than they think they are. Families, schools and young audiences (especially gamers) will be amazed by IN THE ZONE.
