Grand Park, 2013

ACTIONscape

Projects

This performance is commissioned as part of Grand Park’s Dance Series in downtown Los Angeles and is a collaboration with architect Rennie Tang.

ACTIONscape illuminates every day human action as an integral component of the landscape. The performance calls attention to the physical landscape and urban context of Grand Park while revealing the inventory of the daily movement patterns present in the park. As the performance moves from one zone of the park to the next, movement sequences reinforce the qualities of each space and the movements of the dancer’s bodies in collaboration with those qualities whether they are intimate and quiet, vibrant and colorful or expansive and grandiose.
