The People’s Opera House is a dance and audio-visual collaboration between choreographer Aurora Lagattuta and video and installation artist, Tony Allard.
An immersive performance installation, which combines choreographed and improvised dance, real time and pre-recorded video projections, live audio mixing, digital drawing and animation on mobile devices, The People's Opera House is an experiment in crowd-sourced creativity and democratized virtuosity.
