The new Girasomnis project can be enjoyed from your mobile phone, computer or with virtual reality (VR) glasses.
Girasomnis will premiere a new immersive show on April 20: Surreal Soul.
And it does so by adapting to the new times, with a totally virtual approach that the audience can enjoy with a mobile phone, a computer or virtual reality glasses.
Surreal Soul is an apology for surrealism as a vehicle for freedom, a journey into the new imaginary universe of Girasomnis interpreted by the dancer Sara Khatiboun, from the Spanish National Ballet, and the renowned choreographer Ester Carrasco. It is an artistic fusion project, a dreamlike experience where art and imagination meet to offer a multi-sensory journey within a unique virtual universe.
It will be presented as a succession of chapters with the premiere on 20 April. In this first one, the public will be able to experiment with augmented reality paintings, and even acquire the project segmented into several pieces of crypto-art (NFT’S).
From there, subsequent chapters will be available throughout 2021 and 2022 and will be presented in different digital, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) formats with ambisonic sound, as well as immersive video shows in 360º spaces or 360º projection domes.
This new show concept will also be premiered in a special format with holographic sculptures of Holomapping, a technique in which the creator of Girasomnis, Paco Gramaje, is a pioneer.
