HOMMAGE TO THE TRIADIC BALLET
Inspired by the costumes of Oskar Schlemmer‘s Triadic Ballet from 1922 I developed a dress made of paper which was presented in the context of a dance performance to the original music of the Triadic Ballet. The dress was made by folding a single sheet of 10 metres long paper. A cardboard collar as well as a caricaturistic cardboard tutu stabilize the dress and help to keep the edges in the right place. Despite the sharp, geometric edges the paper dress has a fluent, organic appearance, reminding of a jellyfish in the water.
