THE CONCEPT

An immersive live show enhanced by 35 minutes of virtual reality.

You are invited to participate to the greatest Paris Ball, an experience created by Blanca Li to discover in a spectacular way virtual reality through dance and music. During an hour and a half, Blanca Li has staged a total show, with thirty five minutes spent in virtual reality inside an artificial, fantastic, poetic and surprising digitally created world. Each member of the audience will be invited to watch and also to perform. They will have the opportunity to participate and dance, interacting with live dancers.

To carry out a progressive transition from real to virtual world, the spectator is first immersed in a real ball with real dancers. The party spirit and ballroom dancing figures will be continued throughout his immersion in the virtual world. Built around three great ball scenes, the virtual experience will carry the audience through the whirlwind of a great love story whose main characters are performed by professional dancers. Everyone will be free to dance, to enjoy the party as they wish, and to interact with whoever they choose to do so.

A fabulous, entertaining and totally ground breaking show to be enjoyed with friends or family.

The story of an unexpected encounter

Le Bal de Paris de Blanca Li, beyond the intention of creating a live show unique and immersive, is the result of an unexpected rendez-vous between many contributors.

On one hand, Blanca Li choreographer and famous movie director, passionate about new technologies, has gone into the conception of a virtual experience for the first time.

On the other hand, Backlight studio VR, awarded several times and used to entertainment, is challenged to create an experience mixing dance and festive celebration, for the first time as well.

Adding a touch of poetry and beauty, Chanel, maison de haute couture, designed the costumes of Le Bal de Paris de Blanca Li. Indeed, for the first time as well, the luxury shows up in virtual reality by recreating unforgettable suits and dresses for an out-of-the-ordinary moment. The participants live an enchanted time in a wonderful universe.

Le Bal de Paris de Blanca Li is about to embark on its second year of touring!

Since Le Bal de Paris de Blanca Li was awarded the Lion for the best VR experience at the Venice Film Festival in 2021, more than 30,000 spectators have had the opportunity to experience the show. After a Parisian premiere at Chaillot, Théâtre National de la Danse, followed by a 4-month run at the Palace in Paris, the tour took us to the Théâtre de Liège in Belgium, the Barbican Centre in London, the Flux Laboratory in Geneva, the Festival dei due Mondi in Spoleto, and the Opéra de Rennes. The show ended its first year of touring at the Biennale Danza in Venice last July.

This live & immersive show where music and dance merge with virtual reality continues its international tour! You will be able to try the experience in Istres, Garges-lès-Gonesses, Sceaux or even in Singapore and Taiwan in the coming months… and the Bal de Paris is a finalist in the category “VR experience of the year” at the VR Awards, (December 1st 2022 in Rotterdam).
