Design-led site responsive dance performance inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman's victorian novel about feminine psychology that was staged within a variety of architectural spaces in London & Prague. A large scale crinoline dress worn by the dance performer  created a scenographic space that transformed the body through its' folded form that mirrored the concepts of birth & metamorphosis explored within the novel. Supported through funding by Camberwell Arts & The Peter Minet Trust.
