Cosmogonia Mundi

Make Move Think at XVIth Biennale of Architecture in Venice presents Cosmogonia Mundi

Cosmogonia Mundi reflects on the possible futures of the City of Venice and the Port of Marghera in the form of live dance, using Northscapes Collective’s installation The Port and the Fall of Icarus on the laguna’s shore as a backdrop, and a film documentary. In this project - which is part of a larger research program - MAKE MOVE THINK explores the dialog between individualism and collectivism in contemporary urban culture. Performing Arts and Architecture meld to create a moment where Dance is not merely performance and Architecture is not permanence. 

This project is initiated by architect & urban designer Luisa Calabrese and is currently in the process of making with MMT collaborators, designer Peter Bilak & choreographer Lukas Timulak and dancer Valentina Scaglia.
