Mixed Reality Dance Performance

SONZAI at the V&A

SONZAI is an extraordinary, dreamlike mixed reality experience from director Roland Lane.

Presented at the V&A Museum for London Design Festival 2021, this beautiful holographic dance performance combines the state-of-the-art in volumetric capture, Unreal Engine, and spatial computing.

Experienced through Microsoft's HoloLens 2 headset, the stunning audiovisual experience features a mesmerising holographic performance from choreographer Maëva Berthelot's amid the V&A gallery's artistic treasures.

"The possibilities for both cultural venues and the entertainment industry, in general, are fascinating as the real and virtual worlds begin to overlap."

Roland Lane

Director, SONZAI

"SONZAI is a mixed reality experience that propels performance art into the future. It's a wonderful convergence of contemporary art and pioneering tech which shines a light on the rich and exciting possibilities for volumetric content."
