REALITY WARPING questions how we know reality is actually reality and who constructs it. This dynamic evening critiques our current view of creating and main­taining the identity of our contemporary selves. It puts a magnifying glass on the disconnect between reality and perception, as well as our survivalist ability to adapt ­ all through a lens of playful wonder. The performance project works with dance, music, projections and video looping, social media and augmented reality. With this cross­disciplinary performance, REALITY WARPING ques­tions the relationship between our digital existence and our analogue selves, the dissonance of the interplay between reality, perception and social construct.
Jasmine Ellis is a Canadian choreographer and film director based in Munich. A graduate of Etobicoke School of the Arts, The School of Toronto Dance Theatre and Codarts Rotterdam Conservatory, she has worked professionally in dance since 2006. Ellis is regularly awarded grants for independent productions, in addi­tion to receiving commissions for creating stage works nationally and internationally. Ellis’s uncategorised approach to movement, body language, text and music is the basis of her artistic approach, in which humour, vulnerability and familiarity are woven together to create unexpected worlds.
