More recently the 124 Km Wadi Hanifa Project using bio-remediation has received the 2010 Aga Khan Award for Excellence in Architecture, 2011 UNESCO Prize, and stirring interest at the UN.

THE CALM BEFORE…

Client: The Chimera Project Collective
Project: Event / Film

The Calm Before… starts with a question: How to escape the present moment? To find the symbolic exit from the present, the protagonist must face seven fears, progressing through an intense labyrinth of the subconscious.Inspired by the need to escape an oncoming metaphoric storm where inner strength must be summoned in the face of deep seated fears, this radical new work is charged by the clash and blend of hip hop, contemporary and improvisation.

Furious kinetics and theatricality, The Chimera Project’s trademarks, reach new heights in this visceral heroic journey.
