Loie Fuller: yellow & black (Ola Maciejewska)
Loie Fuller was an American dance pioneer of the late 19th century that manipulated gigantic robes into sculptural forms. This is a performance of shape shifts, instant freezes, and temporary sculptures. Fuller, the dancer, is here stripped down to a Dancing Dress (a 1894 patent of her), and looks like a pre-modern cyborg. When this compound of flesh, meters of silk, and sticks of bamboo or aluminium moves, it is hard to discern who or what moves and how.
