This is Choreographer and dancer Megan Bridge in “The Fold” , which premiered in 2005 in South Africa. This costume was one of my all time favorites to make! I received the Leeway Foundation’s Window of Opportunity Award to create it, which gave me access to so many resources to manifest my vision. I worked with sculptor Daniel Dalseth to build the metal and leather panniers, purchased incredible silk charmuese and dupioni for the cape which I hand smocked. There is reflective fabric on this costumes which collaborator Peter Price interacted with electronically to create live feed video during performances. Photos by JJ Tizou.
