High wire artist Philippe Petit describes EVE in this way: “Fighting gravity and sharing with the winds the fabric of our dreams is as important in life as getting bread and water. EVE reminds us of that while inspiring us to grow wings and take off!”

36fa642547 poster
With our short fashion dance film, we would like to take you back in surreal pre historic times.

Capturing the tale of mysterious creatures living on earth. Pure in their emotions and expressions.

Following them on a journey of identity and self expression.
Fashion as a tool to bond, it makes us belong, it makes us stand out and differ.

We start a jurney of emotions, expressoin, fabric and movement.

Short Film: HIS PARTY, 4min., USA, Dance

B61e58dbe5 poster

“His Party” is a short film following six women in a 1950’s home setting. This movement infused short film explored the trope of Romantic Paternalism, a past societal norm deeming women as fair, gentle creatures to be gently handled and cared for, through exploring the isolated roles of women in the 1950’s. Amidst the controlling, dictator-like masculine energy of the household, the women scramble and writhe in their restrictive areas of the home while attempting to maintain an imposed level of cheeriness and normalcy.
