The runway awaits ...who are you wearing?

In our most ambitious show yet, Contradiction Dance presents a world-premiere production where dance as theatre smashes into high fashion on the runway. F A S H I O N V I C T I M explores and exposes the emotional roller-coaster that is the fashion world, and the many ways in which this culture bleeds into our everyday lives. A performance bursting with multiple forms of art ‑ dance, live singing, and dramatic portrayals ‑F A S H I O N V I C T I M features fashion as art, and a world where we strive to balance conventionality and individuality. Who are you wearing?

The Present

We are athletic, beautiful creatures ‑ the physical embodiment of energy and elegance.

Featuring lifts, dives, rolls, spins, and leaps to a conclusion of joy and laughter, The Present is a physical expression of 
our greatest gift ‑ this very moment.
