︎the Dirt (2022) performed at
︎Centrale Markthal, Amsterdam during the Gerrit Rietveld Academy’s annual Fashion Show
︎Capital C, Amsterdam during Amsterdam Fashion Week

︎‘The Dirt’ is a fashion choreography that asks you to reconsider your own body as a centerpiece to the fashion system. By using the human body and movement as my primary fabric I explore ways of relieving the fashion system of its capitalist tendencies. Reconnecting to our own body can help us reconnect to other bodies again, human and terrestrial, and promote a world that lives in symbiosis. In this line of thought I would like to amend Donna Haraway’s famous statement by inviting you to ‘yearn for kin, not garments’.
