COSTUME DESIGN for ENDLESS SONG OF SILENCE
Premier on September 13th, 2019, Amsterdam
'Endless Song of Silence' is the latest collaboration between choreographer Nanine Linning and costume designer Irina Shaposhnikova. It is a multimedia dance production that tells a story of two people drifting apart. The relationship between two people who straddle the thin line of breaking up, showing the stages of relationship full of confidence witnesses the emotional experience of universal love and its painful ending.
For this production Shaposhnikova creates unique costumes designed for the shadow scene where dancers seem to appear and disappear gradually. The sculptural yet transparent costumes with exaggerated proportions enchase the movements of the dancers opening up new possibilities for the physical expression. The other costumes consisted of light feminine chiffon dresses, armour-like looking pants and laser cut leather mini dresses.
