Perspectives on Bailey Plaza

Bailey Plaza

Kimberly Wilczak, M'LArch'12 candidate in Landscape Architecture, will present a collaborative dance performance on the concept of body movement influenced by space, elevation and location. The presentation combines methodologies from environmental collaborations of choreographer Anna Halprin and landscape architect Lawrence Halprin, and Chance Operations developed by choreographer from Merce Cunningham. Dance and design students will demonstrate movement sequences as a major force in design. The artist will create a three-dimensional mobile to be employed as a means to remove personal choice of movement from the equation of choreography.
