Touring in China: Cie Gilles Jobin and Gardi Hutter

Two very different Swiss shows can be experienced from 9 to 18 May 2019 in Shanghai, Nantong Wenzhou, and Taizhou.

«VR_I» is a contemporary dance piece in immersive virtual reality created by Cie Gilles Jobin and Artanim. Equipped with Virtual Reality headsets, five visitors at a time will be able to freely navigate a world inhabited by virtual dancers. «VR_I» was presented at Sundance Film Festival 2018 & La Biennale di Venezia 2018, receiving awards at the Festival du nouveau cinema in Montréal 2017.
Supported by Swissnex China and Pro Helvetia, the presentation in Shanghai will be followed by a roundtable discussion with Gilles Jobin and other speakers, who will share their insights with artists and curators of the VR field.

9-12 & 15-18 May, «VR_I» at Chronus Art Center, Shanghai

Gardi Hutter, perhaps the most famous clown in Switzerland and the winner of a Swiss Theatre Award, crosses the borders of language and nations to bring joy to others with her comedy. She plays a sloppy laundry woman, an admirer of Joan of Arc but lacking worthy enemies, who transforms her laundry room into a grotesque battlefield.

10 May: Nantong, Hai An Theatre
11 May: Shanghai, Shanghai People Theatre
12 May: Wenzhou, Grand Theatre
