Recreo De Noche

Days are short at the tropics, and the vision for Recreo de Noche (RDN) is to provide multiple Puerto Rican communities with light after sunset, in an effort to address the immediate recreational and social needs of residents who are deprived of lit public spaces that can be used as playgrounds and communal places.

Twice Out of Paradise (TOOP)

TOOP is a dance production that uses artistic and technical experimentation as an engine for positive social change in the context of environmental issues.

PhoScope experimented with photocules and optics to provide hypophotal theatrical light tectonics, and developed a framework for experimentation and implementation.

The production behaves as an ecosystem, and dancers, stage and light are entirely co-dependent. All work was developed and presented at Espace 104.

Dance production by Jeanne Bloch.
