Developed over 3 years, ‘Finding Words’, grew from a scratch work to a full-length piece of dance theatre ‘Red INK’; Designed in close collaboration with Choreographer & Dancer Si Rawlinson, this piece came loaded with battles to fight. Merging contemporary dance with break-dance skill, we ruffled feathers in both worlds.
Costume led the choreography and visual story of language, the oppression of freedom of speech, cultural influences and our inherent need to communicate. The costumes were designed to accentuate the dancers movements and ultimately show the beauty and rawness of words. They were in rehearsals very early on which allowed the dancers and choreographer to explore the possibilities of the costumes. This was the first production created by Wayward Thread Dance.
This Design was featured in the UK Exhibit ‘Staging Places’ at the Prague Quadrennial and V&A Exhibition in 2019/2020
