OCTOBER 25, 2017

An evening of non-stop surprises and stunning beauty awaits you.

Through virtuosic dancing and the wizardry of motion tracking technology, audiences will be swept into an otherworldly artistic wonderland. The audience becomes a part of the show when they text their own selfie to the stage and see it appear during the performance. Then audience members journey with Rainbow Dance Theatre through an exotic moving landscape – a sometimes gentle, sometimes explosive terrain – as SELFIE delves into the mystery of the “self”. Are we our outer perceived persona, our inner emotions, or our deep unconscious self? Or are we the selfie that we “share” with the world?

RDT Artistic Directors Bergman and Thomas have collaborated with internationally renowned leaders in the fields of animation, motion tracking technology, and computer software design to create a powerful yet exuberant artistic entertainment. In addition to custom designed software from Hungarian programmer Gabor Papp, two full-stage scrim/screens, three projectors, two cameras, and three computers are necessary to run the elaborate production and create the beautiful landscape within which the dance unfolds. But none of this overshadows the high-powered, breath-taking physicality of the RDT dance ensemble, which brings passion and humor along with virtuosic dancing, gravity-defying partnering and sheer beauty of execution to the unique choreography that glues together this magnificent new work.

SELFIE will be on the Esplanade Main Stage on October 25, 2017 at 7:30PM

Rainbow Dance Theatre’s newest production “SELFIE” presents an evening of non-stop surprises and stunning beauty when dance and technology collide onstage. The work features the popular social media phenomenon of “the selfie” as an integral part of the production both when audience members text their own selfies to the stage and as a point of departure for an exploration of the mystery of “self”.
