An immersive live performance sublimated by 35 minutes in virtual reality. 

You are invited by Blanca Li to the biggest ball in Paris! Music and dance merge with virtual reality to offer you an innovative, festive, artistic and spectacular experience. You don't need to be familiar with dance or virtual reality to dive into this ball that will take you on a journey through different universes.

With Le Bal de Paris, virtual reality revolutionizes the world of immersive performance and erases the boundary between spectators and dancers: anything is possible.

It is a great love story divided into 3 acts that you will live with 9 other spectators. Three dancers playing the main roles of the plot will invite you, in turn, to a waltz or a cancan. You are free, according to your desires, to observe, dance, interact with the dancers, the other guests or to enter the dance of this party that promises to be unforgettable.

A party lasting more than an hour that begins at the reception, where you will be offered a teaser, before plunging into 35 minutes of interactive and timeless entertainment in virtual reality. A universe as poetic as it is fantastic, imagined by Blanca Li.

Adèle celebrates her return to Paris at a ball organized by her father in her honor. Pierre, one of the guests, will change the course of the party.
