Poof!! In Movement, 2009

This was my very first costuming and collaboration-based project. I worked with a choreographer and 3 dancers to make this project come to life. It was about taking the cake and confection-focused works I was making to another level. I wanted my clay cakes and characters to move around. So I made giant felt versions of them and put people inside them. I had them perform in a racquetball court, and the choreographer had them dance to a maniacal and repeated track. It was a hilarious performance that we were so lucky to be able to do 4 times… It was amazing!
