Marie Polo is a French artist, filmmaker, and therapist who has been gaining recognition for her immersive screening concept. Her first feature film, HUBRIS, explores trauma and healing, and her immersive screenings aim to reconnect people to their emotions and sensations in the moment through interactive performances. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, she managed to tour HUBRIS and offer immersive screenings to diverse audiences in unique locations around the world.
Her latest project, TUNEKO, is an interdisciplinary art project focused on water, and its first immersive screening will take place in May 2023 in Berlin. In addition to her work as an artist, Polo is also a dance and holistic massage therapist who offers healing sessions of intuitive dance and mind-body-heart reconnection. She is the co-founder & curator of an artistic laboratory in Paris called 229 LAB, which opens new ways of interacting with artworks and artists through immersive experiences and workshops. Polo is also working on her autobiography, "30," which is set to be released in late 2023.
