UNA is an experience in total immersion. In Nuve, performed by Né Barros in 2010, the relationship between the choreographic body and its artificial double was explored, in the space-time, projected and extended in an intimate relationship with the virtual. In Co:Lateral (2016-2019), the immaterial space expanded, the image became closer to the public, and between the moving body and the audience, transparent, mixed, embodied realities were presented. Co:Lateral has been performed on several stages in recent years, and its research has been thought of in many international conferences. In an admittedly experimental approach and even more installation/performance perspective, Co:Lapse was also born. UNA is a possible continuation of this immateriality, this time, in total immersion, where the audience (one spectator at a time) witnesses the body in movement, again, expanding. Ten years after Nuve, one goes back to testing, to the laboratory, transforming and questioning the performative and embodied space, where the spectator is one, is not in the audience, but in the center, in a space that does not exist, and where different understandings of the performative body are reflected.
