‘Installation Award’ - Interior Architecture Awards 2015

Set Design - Rawstorne Studio
We collaborated with Moss Patterson / Atamira Dance Co. for the 7 years of his tenure as Artistic Director.

‘MOKO’ was our first award winning project.

For this piece we designed a complex series of ropes on pulleys that were attached to a truss frame. The ropes initially controlled a expanse of black fabric, this was manipulated live by the dancers into extraordinary shapes and structures. We were able to create multiple spaces with extraordinary speed and agility.

Differing scenes were further heightened by video mapping onto the sculptural shapes of the black fabric. The fabric fulfilled the roles of Te Kore, Te Pō, Ranginui and Papatūānuku, a waka, cloud, tent, wall, canopy and cloak. The second half of the show sees the black fabric being replaced by red ropes which the dancers manipulate into a series of formations that augment the evolving story.
