Bodytorque is a collaborative project between five emerging designers and choreographers from The Australian ballet. I found myself drawn to this project particularly because of the video below:
I don't know what others come away with after viewing this mini-documentary, but for me, it raised lots of ideas about our relationship with the everyday. Clothing is often primarily appreciated visually rather than sensually. This project seems to evoke questions about the types of everyday things we place upon our skins and bodies, and I rather like this idea of considering clothes from a movement- and sensually-orientated perspective. What did you think of the video?
