In this interactive Daydream experience the user is able to switch between two stunning cosmic worlds and experience the choreography in different ways.

“Exploring the new creative possibilities opened up by digital technology is a defining principle behind Alexander Whitley Dance Company and the productions we have created. I’m thrilled, therefore, to have had the opportunity to work with the Guardian’s award-winning Virtual Reality department in the creation of this new experiential platform for 8 Minutes. I’m as excited by what dance has to bring to the burgeoning field of virtual reality as I am by the opportunity it presents for creating and experiencing new forms of dance performance.” Alexander Whitley
