Ballet Memphis

The building, like a music box, has been conceived to contain a surprise and a treasure: dancers and their movement.  It is a beautifully crafted object on its own, but becomes even more intriguing when it reveals what it contains.  A music box may be opened and closed to hide or reveal its contents….much like the gauzy overhangs and deep insets of the building act as the opening lid that brings to light the activity within.  The exterior form emulates a music box, simple and rich in material, to frame and display the music and the dance when it is opened to view.
