2012 Gindroz Prize for Travel Winner Announced
Talia Perry Recipient
Congratulations to fourth-year archi Talia Perry who has been named the 2012 Gindroz Prize for Travel/Study in Europe for her winning submission, "Dance and Dynamic Modernity".
Talia's proposal "seeks to study three cities, three buildings, and three ballets, each representative of a moment of burgeoning modernity - planned / constructed / performed at a time nearing intense social, political, economic, and representational transformation. Each becomes a case study of change initiated thorugh the activiation of an art."
"The choice of these three sets of three - Don Quixote at Wiener Staatsoper in Vienna, La Fille mal gardée at Palais Garnier in Paris, and Les Ballets Russes at Semperoper in Dresden - best represent, in my own limited experience, changing notions of collectivity, of modernity, and of movement through space."
We look forward to the fall of 2012 when Talia will present her travel experiences.
