Imagine. Fire, Water, Earth and Air.
Four elements, driven by the energy and rhythm of nature, emerging into something new.
“ELEMENTAL” is about „creating something that is new and fascinating as a group of artists, together.” It depicts four expressive dancers who transform into earth, air, fire and water in order to show the amazing possibilities of working together while using different art forms. Elemental combines the art of a real life dance performance with motion capture technology and houdini fx in a visual effects project.
