"The Architecture of Space"

Tongva Park

1615 Ocean Ave., Santa Monica, 90401


Incorporating live dancers and musicians from the Venice Symphony Orchestra (VSO), this site-specific work explores the effects of the landscape architecture of Tongva Park both aesthetically and psychologically. Designed to recall the arroyo landscape of washes and ravines, the park with its undulating topography provides a rich environment to examine how the shaping of space elicits emotional connections and reactions. Dancers, musicians and audience members travel throughout the park during the performance, encountering sculptures, plants, pathways and water elements. The park itself becomes a performer in the work, with its architectural elements inspiring and influencing the type of movement and sound that is performed.
