laps is a performance, an interactive installation and an audiovisual work all in one. Out of the darkness, a character suddenly appears in a confined space. Moving through a virtual labyrinth, thanks to real-time gesture sensors, her movements are turned into a sound and sounds turn into movement.
Then, the audience enters the same virtual labyrinth and has to move through a sound maze, following the clues hidden in the performance to find the exit, almost like an escape room. Finally, the gestural and sound data of each user entering the detection zone generate virtual portrayals streamed online.
