“Puzzle Me!” is the narration of a great cultural project which arose from the collaboration between the Academy of Beijing and NABA Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti. The scenography, conceived together with Marco Cristini, is a communication platform with a strong impact on which Chinese choreographer Yang Jiang placed 11 performers from 7 different countries to dance at the sound of the RUAN, a traditional Chinese stringed instrument.
The scenographer Margherita Palli chose to match two materials which reflect the identity of the project and the symbolic and conceptual intentions of the show: paper, ancient material that the Chinese tradition transforms into forms ranging from objects to calligraphy, and i-Mesh, the essential texture, a symbol of technological matter in its purest form. Thanks to this result, i-Mesh has been selected as Finalist 2016 for the category “Light and Surface Interior” for the prestigious Surface Design Award 2016 in London.
