Stretch 1 2 3

The collaborative piece ‘Stretch 1 2 3’ between contemporary dance choreographer Kara Coffey and textile designer Mila Harris-Mussi explores the relationship between knitted textiles and the body, investigating how the fabrics transform when worn or hung in a space. These pieces demand movement, both the choreography and the dancers using the pieces to their full potential by pulling, twisting, stretching and weaving in and out of them. It is this interaction and communication between the dancers and the knitted cloth that brings unforeseen forms and shapes to life.
