Furthering the 2016-2018 'Augmented Organism - Finland' research project’s focus on Environmentally Adaptive Choreography, the Bangladesh Project site specific performance continues to apply immersive 360 video methodologies of movement, exploring and responding within the Bangladeshi landscape of Cox’s Bazar.
