Kinetic Cloth

Kinetic Cloth, Soundings Theatre-Te Papa Tongarewa, 2006

Kinetic Cloth was a collective performance that explored the kinetic potential of textiles through dance and music.

Each designer created a textile in response to a given piece of music and then worked with a dancer, choreographing the performance so that the textile became the main performer of the piece.

Caitlin Le Harivel’s piece entitled Mountain Song began as a casing for the performer, becoming an extension of her body as she emerged from its folds.

The textile was made from flat strips of fabric that were heat treated into a coil and printed using sublimat.
