A new immersive light show is coming to Toronto, and it is expected to be the trippiest one, featuring dancing molecules. IAM: Dance of the Molecules had its first premiere on March 5 at the Aga Khan Museum and is set to become four acts of 50 minutes. IAM: Dance of the Molecules was developed by Toronto artist and scientist Radha Chaddah, who explained on the art exhibit’s website that it is “an interpretation of the dance that human and viral molecules engage in when they meet inside the body.” It also involves the COVID-19 pandemic. Chaddah explains in one of the acts, “pulsating light projections,” the dancers play the coronavirus and other various molecules. You can watch the light show virtually on the exhibit’s official website right now, but the ultimate goal is to make it an interactive outdoor experience. All four acts will be able to come to life in 2023.
