Rosetta was developed in Hull, England and Vilnius, Lithuania. It is a collaboration between movement artist Zivilė Virkutytėn and digital artist Ed Grimoldby.
This solo movement performance is illuminated through cutting edge live motion tracking projection. Through the use of movement and technology a deeply introspective narrative is explored which traces the development of communication. It is an unrelenting sensory experience.

“This won the prize due to originality of physical vocabulary, form, genuine partnership with technology and theatrical charisma of the solo and performer. I loved the purity and the physicality of the choreography. It was fresh, and had a great balance of being challenging and arresting as well as very beautiful.” — Liv Lorent
“Really brilliant unnerving and other worldly piece from Ed Grimoldby and Zivilė Virkutytėn last night at HullDancePrize. It felt like Stranger Things meets David Lynch meets dance. Captivating to watch.” — Yorkshire Dance
