is a performance directed by Georgian artist Uta Bekaia.
An apocalyptic celebration through movement, video, music and text of ancestral rituals with elements of Butoh, 19th century circus, and contemporary dance. Featuring new art-wear works by Bekaia, the stage is conceived as a fashion arena where costumes are the embodiment of animal instincts, dreams, and desires. Digging in the unconscious’ most primal nature – violence and sexuality – VESTIPHOBIA offers a contemplation of vileness’ hidden beauty.
