360 Degree Blanca Li, a 360 degree art film, or ‘spherical choreography’ for dance and technology is a choreographed piece for 20 dancers that mimics an untypical day at the office. The viewer is placed in the center of the action and can change their point of view at anytime. Each view is different.  You can watch it right from the pleasure of your own home.

Here are some shots I took off my laptop, a very dizzying experience.

Three 360 views were made by dragging my mouse around.

This film can be viewed on a computer, tablet, phone, or Oculus Rift.  Blanca Li Andalusian has worked for many years in areas of dance, cinema and technology, and put this together after thinking through the role of the viewer in performances. 

Usually I have a lot of commentary in this blog, but I think the photos speak for themselves. Many of them are screen shots from Arte TV in France.
