“Just one person can do it” performance for the World Environment Day 2012, Attica
June 12, 2015
“Just one person can do it” was an environmental site specific performance for the World Environment Day 2012, directed by E.Alexiou, an initiative and production of E.Y.D.A.P. S.A. (Greek water supplier company) at the Marathon Dam.
The client hired Creative Lighting in order to visually enhance the strong architectural identity of the Dam, while designing the lighting for the solo dance performance that happened on it. This was a unique and challenging project. CL had to carefully consider how to balance lighting between architecturally highlighting the structure while creating a safe and inspirational lighting environment for the performer to interact with; and at the same time without washing off the projection, which was equally dominant throughout the show.
This project was shortlisted for the 13th edition of the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space (PQ), the largest scenographic event in the world that explores a wide range of scenographic practices – from stage design and costume design to lighting design, sound design and new scenographic practices such as site-specific, applied scenography, urban performance, costume as performance, and much more. The upcoming 13th edition of the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space will be held from June 18-28, 2015.
