Set design for piece by Marina Mascarell
Korzo Theater productions with Dance Forum Taipei
The stage is covered by 120 kilos of green lentils which were manipulated by five dancers, creating storms, landscapes and other obstacles within the theme of Time. The piece premiered in February 2013 and toured through Europe, Taiwan and South America in 2014.
Ludmila worked with Marina (winner of BNG Prize for Dance, 2015) from August 2012, exploring the properties of the lentils, developing tools for the dancers and also researching the maintenance of the material during rehearsal and transportation. Lentils are soft and they like escaping through tiny holes.
