Description: The latest production by dance company Another Kind of Blue is an extraordinary experience in virtual reality. HandsON focuses on the relationship between humans and technology and is in line with the theme of this dance company from the Hague. At first glance these seem like two extremes, but Another Kind of Blue fuses these two seemingly contradictory elements into an innovative work that makes you think.
Review: ‘HandsON’ is a weird form of both contemporary dance and hand movements that when combined with VR technology creates a weird, dream-like sequence that is both beautiful and moving. Visually the experience is on point with great clarity and depth that you can only get with VR. While there are no interactions here to sit there for a while and enjoy the sights and sounds is a moving experience and one that I personally recommend. Sure, this is not going to be for everyone for I personally enjoyed it and would have loved to see more. I do wish it was free so more people would enjoy it, but I was happy to pay the price.
