Mudança de Dança

Electronic Language International Festival



As the expression of the body through dance is an important element to Brazilian culture, this design centers on the importance of not losing the freedom to move one’s body. The building encloses the dancer who must be able to move within the confines of the structure, which serves to hold the dancer captive as well as open up the possibilities of how minute movements have a profound effect on the body. Previously filmed footage is mapped to the façade and shows the dancer from three different perspectives performing simple movements within a narrative. The objective of the design is to remind the passerby not to fall into the confines of the everyday work life and to reignite the body.
