Joao Beira: Luxate

Audiovisual Installation and Dance Performance

‘Luxate’ is a new audiovisual installation and dance performance exploring the perception of light and space awareness. Activated by motion, Luxate morphs from an AV installation to a dance performance, generating a live dialogue between the performers and the environment beyond the screen.
