Back to Our Beauty
The Petronio Bendito Collective
West Lafayette, IN
This project was the invention of Petrônio Bendito for the Purdue University 2013 TEDx. We took choreography that was created by Carol Cunningham-Sigman and Amberly Simpson and created an interaction between the dancer and the living drawing that Petrônio created on a screen using a front projector. The lighting was implemented to add another level to the performance. It was not only used to enhance the dancer through the piece, but also to help create a dynamic interaction with the drawings. The colors used were chosen to help make a subtle emphasis on the dancer against the drawings that were on her and behind her.
