In his role as Thinker in Residence at Deakin University Motion.Lab in 2012/2013, Garry Stewart created Multiverse, a new type of audience experience where visually stunning 3D graphics share the stage with three dancers.
Based on ideas from theoretical physics, Multiverse creates extraordinary images that delve into notions such as string theory, parallel dimensions, multiple universes and black holes: ideas that are at the centre of current thinking into how we understand the universe.
Multiverse is one of the first 3D performances to be created by an Australian dance company. Viewed through 3D glasses, Multiverse is an extraordinary work that combines the power of live dance with the wonder of 3D graphics from one of the great innovators of Australian dance.
Multiverse is co-commissioned by La Rose des Vents, Villeneuve d’Ascq (France), Theater im Pfalzbau, Ludwigshafen (Germany) and Théâtre National de Chaillot, Paris (France) and has been made possible through the support of Deakin University’s Thinker in Residency programme, Deakin University’s Motion.Lab and the Australian Research Council’s Discovery Projects funding scheme (project number DP120101695).
