GLORY BOX by Evie Demetriou 

Influenced by the cyber culture and virtual reality, GLORY BOX , alternates between fantacy and reality to experiment with the notion of human needs and aspirations.

Human existence through the prism of today’s society of technology is the thematic context of the performance. The performance’s dynamic explains its success; it manages to raise concerns on the status quo we often embrace but do not consider its consequences.”
Christothea Herodotou, Researcher of the psychology of online video games.

An insight into the Choreographic Process

During the choreographic process for the performance GLORY BOX, there were two events where the audience was invited to an “open studio” to share the process of the choreographer and collaborators on their research of virtual relationships.

The evenings were composed with an academic presentation on the psychology of the user on cyberspace, discussion between audience and the choreographer and presentations of movement extracts.
