Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward

Project Description

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. Through crafted integration at the hands of David Bajt, the UVA designed and built pendulums, became virtual lights illuminating the space through real time rendering.”
