The architecture of cultural and recreational locations is a natural place for free, social interaction – including dance. The paradox is that the dance is placed in a completely unexpected and seemingly impossible situation. Such a space is an office – a place associated with a constant, oppressive expectation.
The context of the Official Hall includes high space, elegant interior and crowds of people waiting. These architectural elements are characteristic of the Dance Hall.
Its meaning is redefined by using the existing context. A hall full of impatient and tired petitioners, bureaucratic rules, the dehumanised character, suddenly turns into a dance room. Completely random people standing in queues spontaneously push each other into a dance. Negative emotions which have accumulated in this space are exploding.
The concept rejects the creation of a material object. It uses only the existing situation and transforms the oppressive attitude into something positive.
