AΦE has been choreographing for The Waldorf Project Chapter Two and Three since 2013.

The Waldorf Project is an immersive experience on a grand stage in which art is consumed through all of the senses.

The project will run over a number of installments. Chapter Three will take place from 10th November 2016.

The experience will unite the senses through food, scent, drink, movement, sound, and environment. Key to this concept is the synergy between the various aspects of the event and the imaginations of the creative team: a food designer, a choreographer, a production designer, a costume designer, a product designer, and a sound designer, all being directed and orchestrated by artist Sean Rogg.

CHAPTER THREE/FUTURO

Chapter Three/FUTURO is inspired by the round, prefabricated flying saucer-shaped house “Futuro” designed by Matti Suuronenn in the late 1960s. This house and many other ideas from that time dreamed a vision of a utopian society that is lost to us now - replaced by a gloomier, dystopian image of the future. Waldorf Project will bring back these incredible ideas, creating a distilled interpretation of these concepts in a minimal yet radical performance.
As with previous chapters, all disciplines will be engaged and synchronized: from the visionary set and product design through gastronomy to light and sound. Everything will be thought through and interwoven to give the guests a complete emotional journey to the future.

EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH LABORATORY

As with Waldorf Project’s Chapter Two/COLOUR, the concepts that will be explored in Chapter Three/FUTURO are so ambitious that a preliminary “Experimental Research Laboratory” is being staged. This will be an opportunity to explore and test out the ideas in a more intimate setting while still creating a stand-alone experience.
