Florian’s piece is about life and death, but he is showing it in reverse from death to life so that trajectory is the inspiration for the lighting design. There’s also this idea of “compressing humanity” so we are going to lower in the electrics so the dancers will be feeling the weight of those lights. As we transition from death to life color starts to come into the space in light blue hues and the electrics lift up transitioning into really bright white light towards the end.
