Concept and Inspiration Nature The Spontaneous Attitude “First of all it must be clearly understood that dance is an art in which design has two aspects: time and space. We can speak of design in a sense of a single line. That is, a dance can be stopped at any moment and it will have a design of space. - Doris Humphrey The choreographer is the producer of emotions for the audience to receive by incorporating the direction and attitude. This interpretive space inspired by modern dance becomes a space of design within itself. The layout of the space expresses a sensation of asymmetrical movement Inspired by modern dance choreography. Sephora’s pop - up store, located outside of ADF will provide easy access for beauty, hair products and more for performing artists and more.
