Canadian Premiere

The fruit of a close collaboration of musicians and dancers, Anicca explores the idea of impermanence, one of the three pillars of Buddhism. Using motion capture technology, the film translates the dancers movements into virtual reality; their graceful and expressive figures move through the same space as the audience, inviting them to rethink their own place in the universe.

Free admission
