TRANSCRIPTION OF COLOR

Transcription of Color explores on Constructivism, the last and most influential modern art movement to flourish in Russia in the 20th century. The main source of inspiration for this work comes from László Moholy Nagy's painting “Construction A II” in dialogue with John Adams's orchestral score “Harmonielehre”. Thinking the music as a canvas and the choreography as the movements of paintbrushes in different colors.

The analysis of the colors and shapes in this painting is used as a starting point for a timeline and the development in the choreography, translating the colors to movement material. The timeline of exits and entrances of different colors interlaces with the dramatic movement in the music; a dialogue between Construction A II and John Adams’ Harmonielehre.
