Dancing Mies van der Rohe – Vazio S/A

Former ballerina at the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, the choreographer Marilyn Wood was one of the pioneers in the research between dance and architecture. In 1972 she presented a show on the windows of the Seagram Building in New York as part of a series she’s called “Celebrations in City Places”. Forgotten today, the choreography used all the 44 floors of the Seagram’s iconic glazed facade, and had 35 dancers transforming the windows onto stage; the hall, the revolving doors, and the plaza of the building forming an essential part of the scenography. With the exception of the photo above, there is virtually no record of the event on the Internet, but the visual resemblance between it and some of Vazio S/A’s works is incredibly obvious, especially in the case of “Invisible Public Spaces” and “Spiral Booths“.
