The Grand Step Project was conceived as a site-adaptive work to be performed on grand staircases, all over the world. The 30-minute work consists of Flight, a 15-minute dance performance for 50 dancers, preceded by a 15-minute performance by a 50-member choir or musical ensemble. Inspired by the dynamic tension between the beauty and grandeur of prominent grand staircases—and the casual use a diverse public makes of them on a daily basis—The Grand Step Project reflects the spirit of the contemporary urban environment. The work also functions as a way for local arts presenters to both reach new audiences and help connect different strands of their cultural community, specifically in dance and music.
