Fugue VR, réalité mixte (creation)

Among the most talented artists of his generation, Yoann Bourgeois worked with film director Michel Reilhac to adapt one of his hits, Fugue/Trampoline, to virtual reality – “a world of novel sensations”, he says. Fugue VR, réalité mixte can be experienced alone, with family or friends. We are on board a drifting spaceship whose captain will try to save the crew (us included)… This Maison de la Danse commission was shot in the magical setting of the musée Guimet, set to become a dance venue in 2021. World premiere.

Michel Reilhac

Based in Amsterdam, Michel Reilhac produces virtual reality films and designs interactive narratives.

His latest VR film, Viens !, premiered at the Sundance film festival in January 2016. International acclaim for that work brought recognition for his expertise in the field of virtual reality. He is also a pioneer in hybrid narrative formats and immersive, participative and interactive experiences.

He is also Director of Cinema Studies at the Biennale College, a project of the Venice Biennale, and is frequently invited to give master classes and talks at international events (Cannes Film Festival, SXSW Austin, Tribeca Film Festival, Pixel Lab, Dixit, FEMIS, and elsewhere). His career also includes contemporary dance creations and he has produced the international tours of major dance companies.

From 2002 to 2012, Michel Reilhac was Head of the Cinema Department of Arte France.

He lives and works in Berlin, Paris and Lamu Island, off the coast of Kenya, where he is setting up a residency for writers and screenwriters.
