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.
