In ancient Japan, mizuage was a ceremony undertaken by a maiko (an apprentice geisha) as a rite of passage, and symbolised her initial sexual experience with a man.

nAThe music film for “Nanao” (难熬) is a haunting tale between two lovers drowning in toxic cycles of entanglement and codependency. Inspired by the ancient Chinese mythological book "The Classic of Mountains and Seas" (山海经 ~300 B.C. ), two dancers portray “MANMAN” (蛮蛮), a mythical beast made of conjoined one-eyed birds. As the video spirals, the two halves undergo a violent process of merging with flashes of fleeting intimacy and tenderness.

I designed the costume.

(un)covered

Where does your imagination take you when you fall in love with a painting? (Un)covered is a dance piece exploring this question with one of the most iconic paintings in the world, The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli. From this painting emerges a strange and unique world where we explore the human form: its beauty and its strangeness. We ask, is beauty ever really attainable or is it just an illusion? We go inside the artwork and ourselves with a quest to learn how the Venus is in all of us.

I designed the costume for the show.

machinal

Written by Sophie Treadwell in 1928, Machinal is a seminal feminist text inspired by the true crime story of convicted murderer Ruth Snyder, the first woman to be executed by electric chair in New York state. Treadwell’s protagonist, Helen, is at the mercy of the sexist rituals that society demands of her. in this 21st century reimagining, Helen’s punk alter-ego appears as a virtual ghost throughout the play in an attempt to save her from her inevitable demise.
