“I’m not an artist, not a fashion designer, I just use fashion, use clothes as a material to make a business out of creation. This is a very important part. Don’t put me in a box.”

Rei Kawakubo’s humorous costumes toy with the idea of physical distortions, such as humps and big rear ends. They are in mostly vertical blue stripes on white, or in pale green and white-checkered patterns. For much of the dance, five or six dancers twist and pose, each in his or her own space, with a rush of additional dancers to the stage toward the end of the performance. The bold electronic musical score is by Takehisa Kosugi.

Yohji Yamamoto nació en Tokio el 3 de octubre de 1943 y forma parte de los diseñadores asiáticos que revolucionaron la moda parisina en los años 80, como Kenzo o Comme des Garçons de Rei Kawakubo. Tras graduarse en derecho en la Universidad de Keio en 1966, decidió ayudar a su madre viuda con su taller de costura. Así, se introdujo en la moda; un mundo que le apasionó tanto que terminó por inscribirse en la prestigiosa escuela de diseño Bunka y, más tarde, creó su propia firma.
