Living in cardboard house gets a whole new meaning with help from Lucky Penny Dancers & MSME Arch Firm
This Summer, about ten Georgia Tech Architecture students have been given the opportunity to work with Mack Scogin Merril Elam (MSME) to help build the set for an abstract performance set to open in August. The performance, titled Threshold, explores issues of domesticity, privacy and dwelling, and will feature dancers from The Lucky Penny, an organization that focuses on promoting contemporary art in Atlanta. As we understand it, the set will primarily consist of a two story house made completely from cardboard. It must be completely structural (enough so to hold the weight of the dancers on the second floor) as well as aesthetically interesting.
The production isn't until August, but we'll definitely keep you posted.
