All Or Nothing - D&K
Thursday 16 March
RMIT Design Hub
Project Rooms 1 & 2, Level 2
6 - 8pm
The FDC was well known for staging large-scale, highly produced catwalk parades, which were documented extensively through photography and film. The parades were significant undertakings, showcasing the work of multiple designers, in a stage show consumed live, as a collective spectacle.
In contrast to this, All Or Nothing is a performance unfolding over several hours, decompressing a traditional 15-minute catwalk show into a durational event. The performance will interrupt and slow down the continuous-walking, no stopping runway format that is currently du jour, to include moments of stasis, encounter and erosion in the mise en scène of the show. The performance explores the difference between the formal qualities of a fashion model, with those onlooking or incidentally just there.
