      New Immersive Theatrical Experience Merges African Artistry With Modern Technology and Science to Nurture Reconnection With Nature and Cosmos

      SAN FRANCISCO, California (July 18, 2013) - Cosmic Mama'e Productions unveils its campaign to produce a ground breaking touring theatrical show in a revolutionary new performance space.

      The launch event will be held at 6:30 PST, August 7, 2013, at the Alliance Française of San Francisco, and will feature a multimedia presentation, Q&A with the creation team and live performances by core artists.

      “Cosmic Mama'e is a new kind of theatrical experience inspired by the San (bushmen) of Africa, recognized as the first people at the roots of our human tree. The show weaves dance, live music drama and visual arts in a majestic dome" says Philippe Baldini, the show’s creator. “It merges the spirit of African artistry and indigenous wisdom with the innovation of modern technology and science to nurture a reconnection to nature and the cosmos. It's an immersive experience to awaken the heart and to rediscover our path to the stars.”

      With the support of the campaign they will create a network of immersive research labs in San Francisco and South Africa to explore the dialogue between the real presence of the performer and the digital arts. Artists, performers, scientists, ethno-astronomists, neuroscientists and technicians from both countries will collaborate in order to create an entirely new kind of artistic production.

      “We’ll tour the country with the world’s largest theatrical planetarium using over 30 million pixels of video to create a seamless cinematic view of the cosmos,” says Ian Downie, Production Manager for Cosmic Mama'e. Intelligent lighting, motion tracking and projection mapping, luminescent costumes with integrated sensors and interactive props will trigger dramatic events in the show. A brilliant musical composition fusing electronic, rock and indigenous music with the real sounds of the planets recorded by NASA will be played through a high fidelity surround sound system.

      Cosmic Mama’e is a universal story accessible to everyone and is both contemporary and organic with fantastic choreography and powerful direction. It is a magical and regenerating show, full of color, emotion, sound, energy and wonder.

      French artists, Philippe Pelen Baldini and Thierry Moucazambo are the creators, producers, directors and choreographers of Cosmic Mama'e. They have created 27 shows and toured in 62 countries directing an international theatre company from Reunion Island. Together with an all-star american and international team, they’ve created Cosmic Mama'e Productions to combine the very best from performance theatre, immersive planetariums, and modern science.
