Laura Zoccarato – Spectacle Total
Diploma project by Laura Zoccarato
“Spectacle Total” is a term derived from the concept of “Gesamtkunstwerk”: a total work of art, in which all elements (music, voice, movement and show) work together. The choreographer Maurice Béjart staged a ballet as a “spectacle total”, by getting his inspiration from different sources, mixing different styles, experimental music, African dances and theatre. I used his idea of mixing different methods to create new visuals by manipulating the images of his archive, both analogically and digitally. The result is an experimental narrative that combines his most famous performances into one book.
