RCO is an interactive participatory dance performance, on variable scales, which unfolds according to the physical behavior of audience participation and their reactions instructed via their smartphones. Audiences, as they desire, trigger rules which they discover little by little.

Messages, as invitations (in French, Chinese, English or any other language) are being sent, via a local mobile telephone network (which we provide), on the smartphones of participating audiences.

A unique choreography which adapts itself to the participants, the architectural spaces and the number of dancers-performers.

RCO is the recipient of the call for proposals Phare 2017, the Diagonale Paris-Saclay.

Partners: la Diagonale Paris-Saclay, Investissements d’Avenir, Laboratoire de Recherche en Informatique, INRIA ex(situ team, Cultural Center Bellegarde, CDCN of Toulouse, Studio the Vannerie, Theater le Ring (Toulouse).
City of Toulouse, Regional Council Occitanie Pyrénées Méditerranée, local Council of the Haute-Garonne.
