‘Try this on, become something other with me’ – 2011

Artist commissioned by Brewhouse in Taunton to make new site specific work for micro festival, May 2011, using backstage spaces of the Theatre.

Raiding the props and costume store, I filled the backstage Dressing Rooms with costumes and objects accumulated over years of productions staged at the theatre.  I invited visitors to dress up with me, to create extraordinary outfits of unexpected combinations. Each costume collaboration ended with a photograph, and a momentary exposure to passersby, at the backstage door.

Two short videos as documentation: ‘Try this on …’ a collection of portraits of the costume encounters here, and for a video with some dancing too, go here.
