Fashion design, in its avant-garde form, has a disposition to become (fashionably) unfashion. In Mariana’s work, she interprets a recent show of Hussein Chalayan to explore how a performance may “succeed” by failing to live up to its idiom. Her thesis takes its cue from Jérôme Bel’s notion that symbolic failure on stage, far from undermining the performance, produces a palpable artistic surplus.

This dance piece is asking the question of: ‘What is an original piece?’.
Using previously created movements, the piece enhances the fact that creating a choreography does not start necessarily with the creation of movement but with the act of editing.  Beg, borrow or steal.
