'COTTON' dance performance by Mami Izumi/GOTRA at FASHIONCLASH Festival 2016
'COTTON' is a solo performance on the intersection of dance, installation and fashion. By using design, (visual) poetry and movement, Mami Izumi (Japan, 1987) performed a sample of her solo project COTTON.
Being inspired by the weaving machine and the production of cotton, she is interested to lay bare the tension between the human body and the mechanics we use to manufacture our needs. Mami Izumi found a close creative partner in this process with Maastricht based fashion designer Verena Klein, who designed the costume of COTTON. ‘cotton [sample c6283-01]’ was presented during FASHIONCLASH Festival 2016, the full performance of COTTON will be presented during Musica Sacra Performing Arts Festival in Maastricht on 16, 17 and 18 September 2016.
