DOCKdigital organizes the festival Humandroid and sees itself as a fluid, free network for the creation of art in connection with physical and immersive experiments.
As part of Humandroid, DOCKdigital actors are now presenting artworks on 1300 square meters that make it possible to experience the field of tension between digital and real bodies through the eyes of different curators. Imaginary worlds of choreographers can be digitally visualized, multiplied and changed, so that the artists can find themselves in different identities.

During the pandemic, the flight forward led into digital space. Research by dancers, choreographers and movement researchers on the one hand and 3D, game and system designers and media artists on the other were dedicated to the digitization of real bodies in real spaces.

The merging of both worlds generates intense works worth seeing in a new way.
