SERRA is an immersive environment, part of the research-creation project : Vegetal Experience, and will have several presentation formats (performances in public settings, stage productions and installations). It involves a close collaboration between Khintirian, mathematician, philosopher and new media specialist Sha Xin Wei, his Synthesis team members, Todd Ingalls and Julian Stein and the world renowned choreographer and artistic director of O Vertigo Dance, Ginette Laurin. The artists are combining their visions to create an original project uniting dance and new technologies. SERRA approaches movement in an entirely new way, adapting time and space scales to the activity of plants, and placing the human body within this new dimension.
