Forgotten Peacock

  • Brunswick Gallery, London, 2009

Theatre set and costume designer takis created this performance piece to examine the male dress sense and attitudes to clothing. His interest in colour, pattern, form and technology and how this is expressed in male clothing was the inspiration behind the collaboration.

Part of the performance involved Dick Straker’s ten minute animation projected onto choreographed models wearing takis’ suits and concluded with a chance for audience members to wear the clothes. Gareth Fry created the soundtrack (but didn’t try on the clothes).
