HOVER FOR DESIGN STATEMENT
Primed is a piece that explores the athleticism and gradual progression of the human body. The music for the piece is drawn from the average heart beats per minute of a dancer’s heart. Lighting supported the athleticism and angular muscles of the dancers by using strong angles and sharp textures. To support the kineticism and progressing tempo of the piece, lighting matched the rising speed of the heartbeats with a “heart beat of light” displayed through the exposed cyc lights. As the tempo of the piece progressed, so did the lights.
