    After winning the 1st prize at the 2019 BABEL Fast International Theatre Festival, Cube has received the Honourable Mention for Video mapping and projections from the biennial national competition of contemporary dance art Ballet 2019.

    Cube is a one-hour show within the successful LaternaLAB, a project that has primarily found inspiration in original Laterna magika productions, blending together film images and live performance. It makes use of the current video mapping from several projectors placed in different spots.

    About

    The visual composition draws upon the motif of the “cube”, in all kinds of possible variants that surround us. Owing to its structure and the potentialities provided by 3D visualisation, the Rubik’s Cube will represent one of the main motifs. By means of a very simple basic scenography and detailed, accurately focused projection, it is possible to markedly change its perspective, movement and surface, thus affecting the overall space, dynamism and time. A modern and precise choreography enhances the film illusion and, vice versa, the film illusion supports the performer’s movement on the stage.

    In 2017, Cube was presented at the festival Theatre World Brno, in 2018 international theatre festival Without Borders in Český Těšín/Czeski Cieszyn and in June 2019 at the international festival BABEL FAST in Romania, Targoviste, where the performance won the price for the Best Show of the festival.

    "Der Titelunserer Vorstellung hieß "Cube" und war eine Mischung aus modernem Tanz und Videoprojektion. Die Effekte, die daraus entstanden, erstaunten und überraschten. Ein herzliches Bravo den Tänzern für ihre Leistung und ein ebenso herzliches Dankeschön dem technischen Personal." (Swisslady2014, TripAdvisor 2.10.2018)

    "Watched "cube". Amazing experience - the perfect mix between technology & art. Highly recommend it." (Patricia Prato Casado, Facebook 14.5.2017)
