As The Floor Shifts

Cutting edge virtual and augmented reality digital dance experiences

A series of Virtual Reality dance shorts that visualise some of the symptoms experienced by people with neurological conditions and disabilities.


The As The Floor Shifts episodes, as works in progress, combine dance performance with motion capture, virtual and augmented reality and mixed media design to create exciting and thought provoking visual experiences.

  • 3x Episodes (each <10-mins)
  • Online & live distribution 
  • Via screens or headsets 
  • Post-screening discussions encouraged

CoDa worked with industry leaders in digital performance to expand this research, incl James Hedley and Copper Candle (collaborators), Collusion (mentors) and DanceEast (research partner). 

As with all our work, special interest audiences were invited to collaborate in our research – feeding into concept development, testimonials, testing episode experiences, and feeding back on which was most impactful and accessible.

 “Seeing my symptoms brought to life through light and dance was fascinating. I’ve never been able to fully explain it, but I really felt the dancers showed what it feels like for me each day. Everyone should see this to understand what it’s like to have MS.”

Tom, participant living with MS
