Dark Points
pvc piping, pvc wheels, rubber
dimensions variable


Set design for contemporary dance perfomance Dark Points by Die Angle at Melbourne Fringe Festival, Mycelium Studios, 2019.



The set was designed for dancer interaction and consisted of six moving walls that shifted through a backlit space in choreographed formations. The six walls were designed for the dimensions of the site; an industrial basement with gridded structural pillars. In doing this, the lighting of the performance was determined by the walls and their formations.
