The Crack Up: Transmedia Dance Performance | Australian Arts Review
In 1936, Esquire Magazine published American author F. Scott Fitzgerald’s essay The Crack-Up – a loose-form story of a man losing his grip on reality.
Led by director and choreographer Kim Vincs and a team of designers and animators at the Deakin Motion.Lab, The Crack Up interprets Fitzgerald’s story and brings the themes to the forefront of digital technology and performance. Live dancers and virtual performers are set against a massive shifting and crumbling world of 3D-projected stereoscopic landscapes and interactive visualisation systems.
Audience members will wear 3D glasses to see the imagery come to life in stunning high resolution, as it envelops performers in an environment inspired by, but entirely foreign to, Fitzgerald’s imagination
