Enter 0AR, a collection of short dance works in Augmented Reality (AR) for all ages. AΦE (choreographers Aoi Nakamura and Esteban Lecoq) sought to bring the live-ness and collective theatrical experience into the work, reimagining the application of this technology. Experiencing 0AR communally via five connected devices, audiences are encouraged to explore, move around the space and interact where their actions have a unique influence on the piece.

0AR is based on seminal masterpiece zero degrees (2005), a collaboration between dancers/choreographers Akram Khan, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, sculptor Antony Gormley and composer Nitin Sawhney. Inspired by their own dual identities, Khan and Cherkaoui searched for the reference point, the source, the ‘0’ at life’s core, through polar opposites, life/death, light/dark, chaos/order.
