"Renowned artists from Singapore, China,  Australia and Spain join Good Company Arts (Aotearoa New Zealand) to bring an “unparalleled digital dance theatre work” to our global community. New Zealand Arts Laureate Daniel Belton leads an internationally acclaimed group of artists to realise this project, featuring Janessa Dufty, Xiao Ke and Zi Han, Jill Goh, Christina Guieb, Jac Grenfell, Patxi Araujo, Stuart Foster, Donnine Harrison, Nigel Jenkins, Michael Askill, Richard Nunns, PerMagnus Lindborg and Joyce Beetuan Koh. “Almost every element on Earth is formed by particles from space, including our bodies.  Astrolabe seeks to reimagine our perception of body, space and time with the support of digital technologies. Astrolabe’s unique visual and aural scenarios created for VR and expanded cinema installation invites the audience to experience different perspectives of space and time - travelling to augmented realms inspired by ancient star charts and maps.  This multimedia project enters into a dialogue with methodologies developed by early Asian and Pacific Island astronomers, and suggests a philosophical ideology of the movement of celestial bodies - acknowledging the Oneness of all life.  The digital arts and dance of Astrolabe transports audiences in an immersive space voyage for virtual reality, and web streaming.”  (Daniel Belton)
