A Music and Dance Film
A Live Event Cinema Performance
An Interactive AR Experience

Music by one of the most admired composers of our time KAIJA SAARIAHO Script & direction by internationally awarded media artist & film director MARIKKI HAKOLA

CONTENT

MIRAGES is about the resources of human power. The protagonist contemplates a close relationship, the many different faces of love, and the sensation of senses, colours and feelings. She experiences the end of a relationship and its gradual transition into a remembrance. Her mind slowly broadens from individual experiences to the recognition of her own powers. She decides to shift her energies towards a greater, communal purpose.

MIRAGES is an exploration combining arts and technologies for creating a surprising and enchanting experience. The visualization is composed by using real-time virtual technology, wherein performers interact with motion capture animations. The result is an audience engaging immersive experience with real-time virtual staging.
