Mayfest presents: Theatre SKAM - Fashion Machine

Saturday 21 May 2016 to Sunday 22 May 2016, 16:00

Would you let a child make you over? Well, now is your chance!

Step inside the Fashion Machine with this unique combination of performance, art and design, where teams of local kids interview selected audience members who then give up the clothes on their backs. The kids then have 55 minutes to stitch, cut, sew, accessorize, and turn the brave audience members’ outfits into new works of wearable fashion art. Live close-ups of the kids at work fill one wall in a giant projected slideshow. The audience circles a Dr. Seussian workshop space as the kids go wild. The climax is a fashion show where the patrons don the new duds and walk the catwalk.

Interviews with the kids at the end of the night see them discussing the creative choices that inspired chopped-off sleeves, altered necklines and blinged-out accoutrements.

Feeling brave? The “I’m In!” sticker lets you know that you’re ready to have your clothes completely – and permanently – altered. Just want to watch? Don’t worry – choose the chicken sticker and the kids will keep their hands off your hemlines.
