Rain Room

16 February @ 12.00 pm - 5.00 pm

tbc

A final day of performance by dancers from Company Wayne McGregor – in the UAE to perform in Autobiography at The Arts Center, NYUAD – in Random International’s immersive installation Rain Room in Sharjah’s Al Majarrah Park.

Rain Room is a 100 square metre field of falling water in a darkened underground space for you to walk through without getting wet. A network of 3tracking cameras installed around the room detect human movement and send instructions to the raindrop controllers to keep the water away from bodies; the work explores how humankind’s relationships to one another and to nature are increasingly mediated through intangible technologies.

Company Wayne McGregor dancers Rebecca Bassett-Graham, Camille Bracher, Jordan James Bridge, Benjamin Holloway, Daniela Neugebauer, Jacob O’Connell and Jessica Wright will perform the dancer interventions in Sharjah. The performances are effectively continuous.
