124 Umbrellas

ECO PAVILION

This 45-minute performance will take place at the Eco Pavilion in the mornings and evenings to explore the space though directed movement, and engage with elements specific to the architecture and its programming. London-based architect and movement performer Elin Eyborg will tend the structure like a gardener and interact with the audience throughout the performances.

In the morning, the structure will open like a blossoming flower, forming a vibrantly colored central canopy. In the evening, it will be transformed into a forest of singular poles. Counting the 124 handcrafted, hand-painted, cotton umbrellas (made by Chiang Mai Umbrellas) as they open and close is a way of celebrating them individually and acknowledging the time and care dedicated to each. Come and experience the transformation of singular objects into a gathering space for unexpected encounters.
