New Movement Collective's interactive dance installation Project XO has been reimagined as a remote digital experience.

Using cutting-edge wearable technology, audiences interact with a robotic exoskeleton suit to control and choreograph the movements of a live performer.

With performance slots every hour and half-hour, audiences can book a ticket to actively engage with the experience or watch the event from home. Audience participants must be aged 16+.

Project XO Remote is produced by New Movement Collective and devised in collaboration with creative technologists Jon Rowe, Simon Haenggi, Kai Lab and Fenyce Workspace, with electronic music and sound design by Olga Wojciechowska, photography and film by Laurent Liotardo and graphic design by Joe Walkling.
