LABA project description

An architectural-garment, visual-storytelling. The garment and choreography follow an inner, physical cycle in relation to the shared day-night-day cycle. I am inspired by clothes and fabrics that contain the body in various stages of life functions. 

What comes out only at night?

Guidance from dreams.
