This artistic installation, comprising 30 unique handmade redwood angelpoise lamps with classic tungsten lightbuls, emerges from the ground creating a structured landscape of responsiveness and light. The sound-reactive illumination takes the spectator through the emotional and physical journey of the performer at the center. The sequenced installation builds the setting, following the motion of the story while providing a consistent spacial response for the viewer. Check out the vid to see it in action!
In September 2012, Nocte was commissioned by artistic director Heather Eddington of State of Flux DanceFilm Company for their Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Awards 2013 finalist performance A Study of Who, organized in collaboration with Create and the Barbican.
A Study of Who is a collaboration between State of Flux and the poet Anna Mae Selby depicting the five stages of grief in a scenography inherently designed and implemented by Nocte.
By using different lighting setups and dispositions for each consecutively revealed element, every scene of the choreography is accentuated in its various settings.
