Honoring the Bonnaroovian Code to play as a team, Amber Lelli, Whitney Proper, and Sadie Monroe are combining strengths from various technical backgrounds to create a skylight installation that radiates positive energy and exemplifies Bonnaroo’s fan atmosphere. Collaboratively, they are creating one giant dancing sound wave made up of translucent vibrant green, fuchsia, and blue dancing figures. The dancers will be suspended in ascending and descending row formations to create a singular sound wave, representing various-types of people dancing together to one vibration. As light shines through the figurines in accordance with the sky, color sensations, and movement the influence of nature becomes prominent in the piece, bringing the flowing, energizing, outdoor Bonnaroo fan atmosphere to life inside the Nashville International Airport.
Dancing Sound Wave is on display at the Nashville International Airport from March 2015 through January 2016. The Bonnaroo Exhibition is funded and commissioned by the Bonnaroo Works Fund, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, and Arts at the Airport.
