main page back gallery -  l’ultimo ballo

This site specific performance in northern Italy commemorated the centenary of a tragic fire in an illegal dance house.  

To give an historic feeling to the dance I used a lot of up-lighting.

 

In order to create the sense of immediacy and horrific reality I designed a real “wall of fire” behind the skeletal set.  This  put the performers in silhouette and contributed to the  overall emotional impact of this very moving piece or theatre.
