Busby Berkeley became famous as a director of Hollywood musicals in the 1920’s en ’30’s. He was often seen as the opposite of Fred Astaire because for him the individuality of his dancers was unimportant. Instead, he drew inspiration from the ballets that took place at the court of Louis XIV, where the public was watching from above and the patterns formed by the dancers were considered more important than the ability of any of them in particular. By using morphing effects Koen Theys created a strange choreography of objects from the urban furniture. Whereas their first role is to embellish our cities and supply comfort and security, these lanterns, trees, bins and control cameras become movable forms, like foreign organic substances susceptible to infect the urban environment.
