CiCi Blumstein’s July program starts off with a specially curated Pecha Kucha evening of quickfire presentations by architects, choreographers, urban planners and artists on the theme of Expanded Dance & Public Space. Pecha Kucha is a series of short lively talks cabaret style with a bar – each talk lasts just 6 mins 40 seconds.

The places where we live are continuously imposed on us. In reality the space in which we operate can only exist as a mental model that is continuously modified through experience. It is necessary to find the form that is born out of our experience instead of by imposed schemes. – Ugo La Pietra, artist, architect, designer & theoretician, in Instructions for the use of the city, 1978 Expanded Dance Space & the Private Choreography of Public Space.

How do we inhabit these different realms? Could urban planning rules and architectural design, mediated through our personal movement experience, directly inform and shape the design of the built environment, and expand dance-able space further into the public architecture of the city?
