Hammerhead is now
Same teams. Same skills
New combined powers.
SONZAI is an extraordinary, dreamlike mixed reality experience from director Roland Lane. Presented at the V&A Museum for London Design Festival 2021, this beautiful holographic dance performance combines the state-of-the-art in volumetric capture, Unreal Engine, and spatial computing.
Experienced through Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 headset, SONZAI features a volumetrically captured performance by respected choreographer & performer Maëva Berthelot.
In a stunning audiovisual experience, created by Prodigious, Berthelot’s photorealistic hologram dances in the V&A gallery space surrounded by masterpieces from Constable and Turner.
Dimension worked in creative partnership with director Roland Lane, to create a hologram of dancer Maëva Berthelot, faithfully capturing her performance, which was filmed at our volumetric capture stage in London using Microsoft Mixed Reality Capture.
SONZAI represents an interdisciplinary collaboration, combining volumetric capture, Unreal Engine, and the latest HoloLens 2 technology from Microsoft. The result blurs the lines between the physical and virtual worlds, offering a spectacular new way to engage with performance art.
