With Hip Hub, you step into a virtual space and become the percussionist. Opposite you, Congolese singer Junior Akwety appears. Not the real one, but his avatar who transforms your movements into music. First he teaches you his moves until you start dancing together and your movements determine the groove.
Your dance becomes the rhythm, your moves are the beginning of a new song created between you and Junior. Welcome to Hip Hub, our interactive musical dance installation.
