THE CRUELTY OF PERFECTION

The Cruelty of Perfection

A contemporary dance performance I directed and designed the costume for.
It is based on the aria 'Con Onor Muore', from the opera Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini. 
I created a costume able to operate as "set", so it will be the only thing needed for the performance (apart from the performer); this design idea represents how the character is born and raised within the tradition, and how that fact influences her identity and freedom.
