Ready to waltz into the arms of a Hollywood star in Tokyo?
Japan's Madame Tussauds wax museum is offering fans a chance to see themselves dancing with Hollywood celebrities thanks to their new attraction, "Hologram Dance Theater" - which launched in Tokyo Thursday (28 APRIL 2016).
Fans can either waltz with A-listers such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Marilyn Monroe, or pirouette in a "Swan Lake" ballet sequence with Olympic figure skating champion, Yuzuru Hanyu.
24-year-old Mizuho Shinden says she was overjoyed to share a virtual stage with two of her favorite celebrities - Monroe and Gaga.
"It looks as though I'm really there, so that's a strange feeling. But I thought, 'Wow, it's like a dream to be able to dance with such amazing people,'" said Shinden.
But for Tomoaki Ishizuka, who found himself dressed in a leotard dancing the "Swan Lake" ballet with Hanyu, the experience was bittersweet.
"I saw myself dancing with other ballerinas, so that was disgusting – but it was disgusting because it looked so real," said Ishizuka.
Visitors have their face scanned using a 3-dimensional scanner. This image is then transposed onto a dancing hologram character for a 90-second-long presentation.
The attraction signals a move by the centuries-old museum to explore novel ways of interacting with celebrities in a digital age.
"I think that Tokyo is a place to expand that new feature along with the wax figure museum because Tokyo has the very latest IT and Japanese pop culture concept place," said the museum's general manager, Toshi Endo.
Endo says the museum plans to add more celebrities to its hologram roster soon.
