Fifth Wall by 2wice

Pick of the Week 57

An iPad App by 2WICE

Fifth Wall is very nice exploration of how dance performance can be transformed into an interactive format. The choreographer Jonah Bokaer is dressed in black inside a box and was filmed by Ben Nicholas. The user can interact with the performance by moving the tablet, flipping or changing the scene. It uses the accelerometer feature in the iPad.

The beauty of the app for us is that it transforms the iPad into a new performance space outside four walls, it’s the fifth wall.
