Blindscape: iPhone technology and circus arts combined – video feature

Described as “a boundary-breaking exploration of circus through smartphone technology”, we at AussieTheatre couldn’t help but be intrigued by Blindscape, a brand new show which mediates circus through interactive iPhone technology at Melbourne’s Next Wave Festival. What’s not to love, right?

Matt Edwards recently caught up with producer of Blindscape Skye Gellmann and physical theatre performer Kieran Law to talk about the show, interactive circus and their innovative use of technology.

“Our personal technologies have become an extension of ourselves. Blindscape looks to exploit that connection to engage its audience in a visceral environment that disintegrates the real and virtual boundaries”, says Gellmann.
