A scenography and cat-walk choreography for a fashion show by Gim Tok Choo
September 2003, Tokyo
This event was held in a garage-turn-gallery space in Shibuya, Tokyo.
In imitation of the fashion designer’s textile weaving techniques and achievement of light nuances through subtle fabric shifts of black, a catwalk inscribed in light was conceived.
Optimising the ‘biais’ of the space, the flow sequence for the models is likened to the diagonal weaving of the fabric. The audience’s eye shifts from spartan silhouettes to crisp detail and back to shadow again in a crescending and decrescending play of light.
The cold solemn aura of silently-advancing ‘faceless’ models moving in surgical precision is enhanced by the atmospheric electronic music of Charles Christophe. A live video projection of the fashion show on the outside of the performance ‘box’ engages the passer-by from the street.
