School of Fish

HDC Annual Dance Concert 003

Stretch fabrics like lycra or spandex offer plenty of opportunity for imaginative dance costumes. Here we have a school of fish modelled on the patterns of clown fish, angel fish and other tropical species. The research for this project was great fun. The fish danced under black light taking advantage of the fluorescent colours to glow and flit across the stage. I added old fashioned swimming caps to make an allusion to “human fish”.
