Digital Movement Dance finds its roots in the lore of far off worlds and mind-bending adventures. It ensnares audiences and tours different realms. A peek here, a glimpse there - all views within the domain of video games. The company enthralls viewers by using the world-building and story-telling foundation of video games, and transposes them through a new medium - a physical, tangible medium. We will shatter the glass wall that separates “player” and “game”, and instead rope “players” into the heart of matter. Into the world of the unknown. Into the center of the chaos.
