DOKU is the digital reincarnation of the artist Lu Yang. Based on the cycle of Karma in Buddhism, DOKU has six costumes which represent the six divisions of the wheel of Karma: Tenjin Road, Shura Road, Animal Road, Hungry Ghost Road, Hell Road, and Human World.
The hybrid performance work took place both onsite and online featuring contemporary dancers using motion capture technology to perform all six worlds.
As a post-performance experience, we were commissioned to archive the performance with an interactive website where you could rewatch and explore the performance from home.
