Nahui Ollin "In Search of the Divine Force." A Physical Immersive Interactive Dance Experience.
The thesis body of work intersects choreography, filmmaking techniques, & video game design to answer the question: can a film, a screen-based interactive experience and immersive interactive dance installation weave through one another as a single channel to create a transmedia storytelling experience? Nahui Ollin, includes a short film, Mujer Maiz, La Hija Del Quinto Sol (Daughter Of The Fifth Sun) and physical, immersive, interactive, user-friendly guided dance experience inspired by Aztec Nahuatl philosophy that encourages players to create original choreography using the Nintendo Wii Remotes as a wearable device.
