General information

Picnic is a sound-enabled piece of urban furniture with a flexible and unrolling floor to hold dance classes and workshops in open public spaces.

The project intends to incorporate the urban and architectural assets of our cities, to the artistic experience of dancing. This discipline usually takes place indoors, leaving the performance of space to the elaboration of artificial scenographies. For this reason, we claim the singularity of public spaces for the arts of motion.

Picnic is backed by PAD (Professional Association of Dancers of Andalucia ) and will give the community the design and fabrication of a prototype, including all kind of technical specs and 3d model, so that it can be reproduced anywhere and by any collective, with total ease. In case the optimum budget is reached, we will also keep a simple georreferencing website to locate all implementations of the project.

Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.

The prototype a simple metal case of about 5m long, 50cm wide, and 50 cm tall. From its design, it is first seen as an atractive piece of urban furniture that functions like a bench.

In its interior, there is a roll of linoleum floor of about 5x10m, a socket for power supply, a stereo, and a mechanical lock prepared to be activated with coins. To use Picnic, just insert the fixed amount in coins, unroll the linolum floor and plug your ipod, mobile or any other device at hand.

The design will be realized by the team, however, in case we reach the otimum budget, there will be an open competition for the concept and detailing of the prototype with a prize of 1000 euro.

Why this is important

The proyect comes out of combining two great passions; enjoying the singularity of our urban spaces and contemporary dance.

Picnic is targeted not only to all dance collectives, children and adults, but also to other practices like yoga, pilates, etc.

Goals of the crowdfunding campaign

  1. To raise enough funds for the fabrication and installation of a first prototype.

  2. To help out spreading the initiative, boost the project and thus stimulating other collectives regarding the scenographic use of urban spaces.
