3x3 / 30x30
3x3 / 30x30 was a mixed reality performance that incorporated live dance and video in Rome and the virtual world Second Life. It was performed as part of the Romaeuropa Festival 2007.

Choreographer Paul André Fortier performed his piece 30x30 in which he danced a 30-minute solo everyday, at the same time, for 30 days, in an open urban space, totally exposed to the weather and passers-by. For this rendition of the piece, he was in the Piazza San Lorenzo in Lucina (Rome, Italy). In Second Life, a set of parallel performances, called 3x3, was presented in which there were 3 performances in 3 different places for 3 minutes at a time, incorporating both reality and avatar-based dance performances and video. Performers from New York, NY and Tempe, AZ - Josephine Dorado, John D. Mitchell, Christine Benham, Lauren Watson and Sean Nevin - joined in the virtual mix. The date of the final performance was Sat, 15 December, during the closing festival party. Emiliano Campagnola was be VJ-ing in the Piazza, mixing Fortier's live performance with images from 30x30 and 3x3.
