Dancing On Gehry's Buildings

Starting next month, Gehry's buildings will be subject to a strange Rapture, an avant-garde dance series by choreographer Noémie Lafrance. "The performances will feature dancers traveling across the entire structure of the buildings," says the website. "Rapture captures the buildings' dynamic architecture in movement, celebrating the striking fluidity of Frank Gehry's design."

"The site-specific performances and installations explore human movements in man-made landscape," says Lafrance. "Each creation uses an existing indoors/outdoors public site or piece of urban architecture as the setting and inspiration for the performance. The choreography constructs narratives through the movement of people in their real surroundings." Via Curbed LA.
