With Arium, a 3D video chat platform for performance & events, Weather# developed a second space and used it as the access point for the project's opening on January 30th, 2021. Click below for highlights!
The project WEATHER# hopes to contribute to the development of new vigor in the Performing Arts sector.
The safeguard of the planet is the most important global priority. We are especially reminded about it in this time of crisis and transformation, when communities are forced to face their fragility in front of uncontrollable natural phenomenons.
The Performing Arts field has been heavily affected by the current crisis, and all creative industries are experiencing the need to develop new opportunities for both production and sharing which is at the same time sustainable and safe. Through the “Weather” project, the collaborating partners have developed a virtual online performing space in which creative designers, musicians, singers, performers and audience will be able to connect from different parts of the world.
The purpose is to use the technology to “heal the distances” that divide us, neutralizing the uncertainties of this time, fostering trust and helping people reconnect with each other and the environment. In a challenging moment of transformation the artists are entrusted with the ability to reinterpret and elaborate the fears, uncertainties and aspirations of the present, and to catalyze new processes already underway in preparation for a cultural rebirth.
