Design Statement

Blattaria, a modern dance piece examines the juxtaposition of beauty and otherness. If we can only see the surface of beauty, excluding otherness, does it limit the qualities and possibilities of wonder?

The costumes were Inspired by the insects of darkness, cockroaches, the wingspan and shiny textured surfaces. The beauty of deception came from the principle dancer’s grand bustle skirt that fulfilled with seven human bodies underneath. The illusion burst as the creatures came out from under the skirt like unsettling cockroach in the NYC subway. The skin-tight long sleeve unitard and hand-dye cockroach-inspired color scheme in each dancer accentuates the unique qualities of their bodies and bestial movements. The contrast of the visual impact in fundamental to the idea of the choreography continuously studying the coexistence of beauty and otherness though the performance.
