Agente Costura: Musical Sewing Performance

On September 4th, as part of SIX FEST, Berlin-based performance artist Lisa Simpson joined suitcase drum legend Ben Brown, choreographer Kelly McInness and invited dancers to present an improvised musical sewing performance in SiteFactory, making music out of making clothes. The collaborative performance joins stitching, movement and sound to revisit notions of consumption as well as social relation to garments, as a continuation of themes developed by these artists during the summer of 2014 in Vancouver.

Thank you to the SIX FEST organizers, prOphecy sun and Jenny Lee Craig, for hosting our event, and to the Vancouver Foundation and Neighbourhood Small Grants for your support.
