Pringle of Scotland ha scelto Milano per festeggiare il bicentenario e presentare la nuova collezione uomo primavera/estate 2016.

Il nuovo guardaroba maschile non sarà protagonista solo di un fashion show, ma anche di una performance live ideata dalla compagnia di ballo internazionale Michael Clark Company e ospitata presso la Galleria Sozzani.

La performance, ispirata dal video realizzato dalla compagnia per la mostra “Fully Fashioned: The Pringle of Scotland Story” inaugurata di recente, metterà in primo piano non solo i capi della nuova collezione ma anche quelli storici dall’archivio del brand scozzese.

Hailed as “British dance’s true iconoclast”, Michael Clark is a defining cultural figure. Since emerging in the 1980s as a prodigy at London’s Royal Ballet School, he has remained at the forefront of innovation in dance, collaborating with – among others – such compelling artists as Sarah Lucas, Leigh Bowery, Peter Doig and Charles Atlas, and musicians Mark E. Smith, Wire, Scritti Politti and Relaxed Muscle.

From the outset, Michael Clark’s performances have been marked by a mixture of technical rigour and experimentation, intense and fine-tuned choreography intersecting with elements of punk, Dada, pop and rock. His productions repeatedly break new ground, provoking and electrifying audiences. As The Guardian noted of a recent performance at the Barbican, London: “throughout the evening, the dancers’ prodigious command and affectless efficiency make them look superhuman.”

Michael Clark founded his own company in 1984. It has since toured worldwide to perform at leading houses in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia, as well as on its home stage at the Barbican, where it has been a resident company since 2005. Michael Clark Company has also introduced dance to new audiences both by performing at unorthodox venues such as the Glastonbury Festival, the legendary Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow, the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern in London and in the Whitney Biennial 2012 in New York where the company occupied an entire floor for four weeks, and through Clark’s collaborations with leading artists, fashion designers and musicians.
