Dance through Others’ Eyes - Exhibition

costume by Marie-Louise Ekman
Exhibition: Dance through Others’ Eyes/ Intro(dans)costumes

During the Dutch Dance Festival 2015 several exhibitions where scheduled that showcased dance through other eyes. I was invited to dive into Introdans archive and curate an exhibition 'Dans door andermans ogen'.
During the days of the festival the costumes I selected where exhibited in window displays at of several stores at Stokstraatkwartier Maastricht.

Dance and fashion are inseparable and numerous collaborations are taking between these worlds. The influence of costume on dance productions was clear in the first Distinguished Dreams project in 2014 when the Dutch Dance Festival worked with FASHIONCLASH.

Introdans archive includes an impressive list of national and international designers who designed for dance production. Costumes by Sjaak Hullekes, Jean Paul Gaultier, Hedi Slimane, Corné Gabriëls and where on Marie Louise Ekman where exhibited.
