The Festival Program 2016

Evening (7 pm): Opening with the world premiere “Ich liebe Dich” a theatrical fulldome performance.

»Ich liebe Dich!« – Paul Scheerbart Variety Show, based on writings by visionary poet Paul Scheerbart (1863 – 1915). »Ich liebe Dich!« is set in a luxurious train compartment where two travelers – Scheerbart himself and his antagonistic companion Dr. Egon Müller –, en route from Berlin to Nowaja Semlja, engage in unconventional discussions, eat, drink, smoke and quarrel. As they go along, Scheerbart is reading stories to a mostly disgruntled Müller, trying to convince him of the benefits of loving the supreme Weltgeist more than anything or anybody else. Müller remains unimpressed. Whereas these dialogues are acted out on the stage “in real”, the mind boggling Scheerbart visions are shown as 360-degree fulldome episodes, transporting the audience into vast and virtual realms and realities with a peculiar Scheerbartian flavor. The interplay of earthly train ride (theatre), and a far-fetched cosmic episodes (fulldome) mirrors the structure of the original Scheerbart novel “Ich liebe Dich! – Ein Eisenbahnroman mit 66 Intermezzos”. Written in 1897, but conceptually way ahead of his time, it is a perfect literary springboard to dive into the genre of fulldome theatre, a new branch of immersive media.
»Ich liebe Dich!« was designed and staged by independent artists and students of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar under the direction of Prof. Micky Remann. Many parts are in German but an introduction will be given in English.

Future Cinema. Conversion of image dramaturgies in context of new technologies.
From the beginning of distribution of digital content in cinema, the technological production and projection possibilities seem to develop at cyberspeed. New projection possibilities are researched, which go much further than the previously known flat screen. The holographic image begins to rise. Current and expected future technologies will define cinema in five, ten, 20 years. But what about the dramaturgical and pictorial content? Is it able to be up-to-date, is it considered yet or thought over? Should it adapt the new possibilities?

Prof. Hans-Christian von Herrmann
World Premiere:  “I feel air from another planet …” A Spatio-Temporal Transformation
The projection planetarium is a technical medium that transforms the whole spatio-temporal environment. So the story of the „Wonder of Jena“ should also be told via such a transformation. The fulldome video „I feel air from another planet …“ starts in a balmy summer night under the starry heavens of 18th-century Germany and ends up with the space travel hype and the psychedelic movie-drome experience of the 1960s. Thus the planetarium initially invented as a device for astronomical demonstrations finally turns out to be a training ground for what it means to live a life totally immersed in technology. This fulldome video is the result of a research project on the cultural history of the planetarium conducted at Technische Universität Berlin in cooperation with Planetarium Hamburg. It has been funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).

“How to sketch fulldome presentations” – an interactive presentation about an ongoing PhD research project.
The inability to easily and quickly sketch early ideas has been identified as a significant challenge for designers working to create fulldome presentations. As part of an ongoing PhD research project, possible solutions to enable sketching are now being explored. You will get to see different possible way of sketching and you are most welcome to join in on the discussion about what is needed to enable sketching fulldome presentations. This work is part of a PhD research project conducted by Danwei Tran Luciani, a PhD student at Linköping University in Sweden.

How to create immersive audio content for FullDome and VR applications
Impressive new possibilities are available to reproduce AV presentations in Domes and on VR Devices. Furthermore VR devices like Oculus, Samsung Gear and Steam Vive over video content monitoring in the production for dome applications. But monitoring the audio experience in a dome as well as creating immersive audio content for VR application is a task for its own. How to do that, tools as well as demos will be shown in this presentation. Tom has developed the Spatial Audio Designer and other software tools.

Studio Vokal Apolda

“Every piece of luggage is a special case!” (Federal border guard at Frankfurt Airport). Come join us on a trip of a stranger in a story of multiple arrivals. Serious or fearful, inspiring, humorous or misleading – each new destination is pushing the realm of the imagination beyond the limits of personal experience. In a certain way the traveler becomes “frameless”… sometimes ending up in a “frenzy”. Countless travelers will come together for the 10th FullDome Festival. What is in their luggage? Where are the special cases, the precious memories? The result may surprise you. This multifaceted fulldome theatre is brought to you by Studio Vokal Apolda (aka. “Die ZoManer”). In their first independent fulldome show, live performance, music, recitation, dance and drama will interactively collide with 360-degree film and animation, enriched with EDM elements and specially produced FullDome Festival ambient tracks.

Marina Masic
Immersive Dreams and Domes
An exploration into contemporary dome art and its ability to serve as a space of wonder, stimulation and healing. Marina Masic will discuss her journey in designing multi sensory environments, social sculptures and the integration of dome. Points of departure include: Dream landscapes, ancient rituals, rites of passage, futuristic spaces, form/function, technological inquiry, “Immersion”, “Interactivity” and the alchemy of it all. Currently, Dr. Masic is part of a new immersive enterprise known as Lucia Light Technology facilitating hypnagogic light experiences and researching furthering connection in consciousness.

Directing the glance – Narrating in 360°
What kind of stories can I tell in Fulldome and VR? Every kind! Important is how you do it. Directing the glances of the viewers is the main task a filmmaker has inside an infinite environment. What are the dominant ways of scenic thinking? What tools are there for your picture, your narration on a surround stage to keep the viewer inside the action? This workshop will explore some examples of how to position the viewer in relation to the 360-degree dome.
