Immerse yourself in the virtual experience...
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.
