Take to the Abbey Stage along with Emanuel Gat Dance

Take to the Abbey Stage along with Emanuel Gat Dance

An immersive 360-degree video lets you explore the stage and move amongst the dancers from Emanuel Gat Dance as they rehearse.

This #ThrowbackThursday, we're not just reminiscing about a spectacular performance to remember. This one is about immersing yourself in a behind-the-scenes dance experience... right now!

While we're all now diving headfirst into new technologies that allow us to continue sharing and enjoying dance this year, DDF has been exploring ways to deliver the best dance experiences in creative ways for some time.

In 2017, ahead of the performance of SUNNY by Emanuel Gat on the Abbey Stage, we filmed the dancers as they rehearsed, using 360-degree technology. The result was an exciting and interactive look into the rehearsal space where the viewer can control what to watch, where to focus on and the viewing angle as the dancers move across the stage.

Whether you joined us to watch SUNNY live on stage in 2017, or whether you're new to DDF, enjoy diving into this digital dance experience now.
