an interdisciplinary performance exploring queerness through dreamscapes
5.fulless is an experimental interdisciplinary in-person performance that emulates the complexity of queerness and identity through dreamstates. As a collaborative piece, audience members participate in creating digital elements through real-time AI generation on their mobile devices creating a world where two movement artists meet - as if they are both arriving in a lucid dream space.
This is an experiment where we’re focusing on trust and anonymity.
As we’re curious about using technology in unconventional ways, we will be using a poll function as a way to participate in the creation of our performance.

A note from the creators:
"5.fulless plays within the space of "meaningful" and "meaningless" - creating a safe, inclusive space for audiences to become whomever they dream of and challenge what it means to be an audience member. We believe that giving audience members the option to anonymously become part of the performance is integral to producing virtual human connections and highlighting stories of identity and queerness into a digital dream space.
As part of our research we will be spending time journaling and researching composition of dreams & simulation theory, we are exploring a digital space that is interconnected by movement art, poetic text, and meditative visualizations. As a team of young females working in technology, this project holds importance within our own identities and how we are emerging as digital dance artists."
