STAGE & LIGHT DESIGN BY PETER MISSOTTEN

RISE UP 
Set and light design for a choreography by Gui Miotto for Menno Van Gorp. 2015

Choreographer Guilherme Miotto made an impression at Korzo’s Voorjaarsontwaken with the surprising piece Gefallen for two b-boys. Now Rise Up premieres, a solo made specially for the multiple world-champion breakdance Menno van Gorp. In a shadowy twilight world, he bravely resists death. But what if he gives in? In an unusual cocktail of urban dance, performance art, and contemporary dance, body and spirit interlock. Time pushes ever onward and gravity gradually strengthens its grip on the body. An echo of life is all that remains.

A brass chandelier - containing a strong HQI light - dominates the scene, projecting a lasercut quote of The Marriage of Heaven and Hell by William Blake.
At one point, the chandelier opens up like a blossoming flower.
