Design Statement

Inspiration for this design was pulled from many sources such as fractals, quantum physics, cloud structures, ice crystals, patterns in nature, immaterial worlds, and invisible connections, as well as from the fashion world, as seen in the sculptural pleats of Issey Miyake and billowing drapes of Leana Zuniga’s Electric Feathers. In order to achieve the choreographer’s wish to keep the shapes amorphous and ambiguous, the designs were constructed of China silk that was hand-pleated organically by twisting it into bundles, and then steamed to set the folds. The wish was not to hide the fact that the dancers were women, but to avoid feminine details in order to blur the lines and to accentuate androgyny of the human forms in the piece. When still, the diaphanous drapes would hang, revealing the human underneath. When in motion, the lightness of the silk easily allowed for the cowls and pleats to fill with air, creating new forms and lines that were unexpected, otherworldly, and not entirely human.
