Hussein Chalayan — Gravity Fatigue


Hussein Chalayan is an internationally renowned fashion designer and artist whose collections are known for innovative design, bold use of technology and elegant minimalism. He was named British Designer of the Year in 1999 and 2000 and has designed costumes for Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's Faun, Michael Clark's current/SEE and Sasha Waltz & Guests' Passion with Pascal Dusapin. In his practice as a visual artist his work is regularly shown in major galleries including Musée Des Arts Décoratifs at the Louvre, London Design Museum and National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo.

In his first theatrical work, Chalayan will combine the visual creativity of his designs and concepts with contemporary dance to bring to life a transformational imaginary world. Working with award-winning choreographer Damien Jalet (Babel), Yeast Culture's Nick Hillel, sound illustrators Mode-F and lighting designer Natasha Chivers, the production takes its inspiration from themes of identity and displacement and the disconnection we experience in public spaces at moments of transition.
