This was a great performance space for The Futurist: part 2.
The bright light and raw space amplified the shifts from dancing with total abandon, to strict formalism, to tense duets with tangled microphone cord. “The Futurist: part 2″ thrives in a gallery environment.
Performed by Laura Peterson, Jennifer Sydor, Kate Martel and Meghan Frederick

Here’s a peek into the transformation of the Atrium into a magical luminous kaleidoscope.
Before it began.
