The video above shows Dutch sound, installation and performance artist Allard van Hoorn preparing for his show with Baltimore’s Charm City Roller Girls. Together, they’ll turn the sixth floor of Pike & Rose’s new office building’s into a choreographed roller arena.
Van Hoorn will create live, electronic music by recording and remixing sounds of the roller skates. There will be reflective costumes made from traffic material.
“This multi-person, real-time, collaborative performance will transform the building from a stationary office building to a building in motion. By repurposing the architecture, van Hoorn visually and acoustically calls into question our perceptions of the spaces we inhabit,” according to a description from show producer Nuit Blanche New York.
The roller arena performance is set for 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Saturday. The entire PRAVA show will feature bigger collection of performances running from 6 p.m.- 2 a.m. at 11810 Grand Park Avenue.
