Costume Construction - Dance

A gored skirt made for a contemporary dance piece for Cathleen Forcucci Dance Company, titled "Latch." The ksirt, made from 75 yards of silky taupe lining fabric, is meant to stretch across the stage in it's width and create a sense of loneliness with the wearer of the skirt. Chaos is created for the by other dancers hiding beneath the skirt, billowing and manipulating the fabric, until the skirt becomes so wrapped around the wearer that she cannot escape.
