“Artificial Eclipse: a multisensory dance installation” premiered

On October 5, as part of Science Week in Chile, “Artificial Eclipse: a multisensory dance installation” debuted, a project that recreates a total solar eclipse, inspired by the total solar eclipses occurring in the country during 2019, 2020 and 2021. Carnegie Las Campanas Observatory was one of the partner institutions of the project, led by Colectivo Analemma.

The work is divided into nine stages, which reflect the phases of a total solar eclipse, creating a dynamic symmetry that fuses scientific, artistic and poetic resources, which are displayed on the esplanade of the Matucana 100 Cultural Center, M100, located in the district of Estación Central, Metropolitan Region.

The project merges various artistic and scientific disciplines, astronomy, theater, dance, music, film and stage design, which converge to provide a multiple sensory experience, designed for all audiences, including people with visual and hearing disabilities.

“Artificial Eclipse: a multisensory dance installation” is part of the National Public Science Competitions for Dissemination and Socialization of the CTCI and funded by the Public Science program of the Ministry of Science, Technology, Knowledge and Innovation, Science, Technology, Knowledge and Innovation.

The performances will take place on October 6, 7, 8, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 at 9:30 p.m. (Sunday 8:30 p.m.) at Av. Matucana 100, Estación Central. Admission is free and on a first-come, first-served basis.
