A deep dive into virtual worlds and embodied avatars, PLÆTO blurs the line between physical and digital by combing real-time rendering technology with live-motion capture performance. The interpretive dance acts as a loose retelling of the famous cave allegory, a being subjected to a narrowed view of reality, and the subsqeuent cognitive dissononce that follows once a new, realer one is discovered. 
There were multiple realtime elements incorporated throughout the piece. In-engine lighting was manipulated by positional data driven by the dancer's movements. Volume and instrumental stems were tied to specific body actions. A link to the full performance can be found below.
