AMY OLLETT - MILK
Emerging Choreographers, Resolution 2019 at The Place, London
Ollett's practice is interdisciplinary, exploring the interface between dance, fashion, movement and design. Beginning with the concept that the body should be extended physically and emotionally through design, her research tests ways to extend natural forms, allowing the body to construct its own resolution to dress.
The work synthesises body and garment so that, without the other, neither fully exist. The body is no longer a passive thing to be ‘dressed’ but creates the complete form.
