Project Description

Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward

“Getting into the swing of things with Notch.”

United Visual Artists collaborated with Benjamin Millepied on Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward – an original work that formed part of his inaugural season as the Paris Opéra Ballet’s artistic director. UVA’s intention was to “create dynamic architecture that choreographs light and space and treats the space like a body – an entity that can move”. Out of this intention, came three motorised pendulums suspended in the space and a full coverage projection covering all surfaces. David Bajt integrated bespoke pendulums with virtual lights which illuminated in real-time with Notch.
