Abstract [en]

This body of work operates at the border between fashion and performance, with the intention to explore the performativity of body, inrelation to forms of dress. The work presented in this thesis sets out to examine the ways the performed act of making may inform theoutcome through designing new activities of getting dressed as producers for dress, while questioning the static systems of makingdress that develops form mainly with an approximation of a bodily form.The work is not about dance, it is not about theatre, it is not about choreography. This work is about the activity of getting dressed andwhat potential knowledge in dress that may be extracted from simply shifting the established order of the relationship between bodyand dress. However, from a methodological point of view, the work is developed through choreography and performance in relation toarranged space as tools to design the activities, and these may well be viewed as a danced or theatrical and dramaturgical play of body,motion, material and dress.These aspects are part of the outcome that suggests not only new formal relationships between body and dress and new methods formaking dress, but also new ways of looking at, and consuming the art of dress.
