"...a visual element that’s half Dario Argento, half Devo, the dehumanization of
the models merged with intrusive sounds of cameras serves to upset our comfortable
relationship with the catwalk. With the bustle of a real catwalk show, there’s something
delightfully subversive about this production" Una Mullally - The Irish Times
Prêt-à-MédiatiserPerformed at Absolut Fringe, Dublin 2011 and presented at RAPID PULSE International Performance Festival, Chicago, 2012.
Taking the fashion runway as a site for exploration, this production showcases a clothing collection that has been designed
for documentation and mediation. Models wear shapes 'cut' from software interfaces and magazine pages and are
accompanied by a live noise scape of drums and tailoring shears.
