Crossing the mirror is a pop-up book whose drawings and paper volumes are the décor of a story, only visible in augmented reality.

Looking through a tablet or a smartphone, the ten double-pages of the book Acqua Alta - Crossing the mirror become the stage for a short dance performance - thanks to a custom-made augmented reality application. In a simple graphic stroke in black and white, ink drawings and white folded paper come together to reveal the virtual life of dancing miniature beings and their dive into the imaginary realms of water. The experience is at the crossroads of  theatre, dance, comic book, animated film  and “artsy” video game.
