RETURN to E.Jay's Gardens

The Dress
A performance series that later became a film. The piece explores feminine rights of passage through live movement, sculptural "dress" costumes and atmospheric film sequences.


Four material elements were used as metaphors for the seasons:

glass  = summer --  the dress of birth

leaves  = fall --  the dress of childhood and exploration

sticks = winter --  the dress of adolescence and making choices

stones  = spring --  the dress of maturity and assurance
