Danubia – A multimedia immersive experience to wet your feet in

As part of the Theatre Olympics, Des châteaux en l’air’s production The Mirror of Waters will be performed twice on 27 and 28 April at the Bethlen Téri Theatre.

Five crew members – a musician, a visual artist, an actor and two stage operators – guide you to an imaginary journey on the Danube, the river that crosses Europe from Germany and flows into the Black Sea after a travel of 2888 km.

With Danubia – Mirror in the Waters, you evolve through an interactive multimedia device where your participation is necessary for the performance to take place. You will be attentive to light, colours, sounds, immaterial perceptions and emotions and let your feet naked to feel the real sensation of water. You will lend your bodies to the river in its movement towards the sea.You will cross Danubia, this land of waters, and some of its mysteries will be unveiled.

For the creation of this performance, the artists Ramona Poenaru & Gael Chaillat have been inspired by the real experience of the traveling they have done on the Danube with the boat Amorados during four months at the summer 2021.
