Dance of Structure

Dance of Structure 築之舞

Although we live in the age of technology, we still need significant human labor from engineers and construction workers when building large structures. As an art form, dance is similar to civil engineering in that it also requires tremendous human effort in its practice and execution before culminating in a formal show.
However, a construction site projects a masculine image. The completed structure is a symbol of permanency and the success of humans striving to overcome their environment. Dance provides a feminine and temporary contrast —- no matter how great a structure is, human beings exist for just a short while.
