ONX + DocLab MoCap Stage: Maquette

    Maquette is a live interactive performance leveraging motion capture technology, avatars, and dance in an exploration of the parallel histories of averaging and idealism in art and society. As an audience watches the live performance, the performers’ movements drive avatars in a projected virtual world creating a genre-bending story that unfolds in both physical and virtual space.

    Maquette is inspired by Norma—a 1940s statue created by gynaecologist Robert Dickinson using averaged measurements from 15,000 white women aged 21-25—and the dissemination of her “model body” through media, medicine, and a normalcy competition. In a creative exploration of Norma’s story, Maquette engages the struggle of the fleshy human wishing to thrive in an increasingly averaged, virtual existence.
