Morphing in Design and Motion, Group Motion Community Performance Project, Diane Litten Fiber Artist
“Diane Litten is playfully exploring unconventional fashion: no patterns, no sewing, just fabrics. All shapes, sizes, misshapes, holes, intentional and not, textures and colors. These fabrics were formerly used to create spaces and dress windows, and she is excited to be bringing them back to life, ‘dancing’. While working with them, a jingle organically came about that she will be singing in the background from time to time. She calls the line and the jingle ‘No Sew Fabulous‘.” – Diane Litten
“Diane Litten is able to successfully bring together chaotic beauty with structured form, creating pieces that make a statement… Her ability to create whimsy while helping the wearer make a definitive statement is nothing short of genius.” – Philadelphia Art Alliance 2011
GROUP MOTION Performance Project… is an extension of the Group Motion Friday night workshop that has been running in Philly for over forty years, guiding participants into a space of authenticity, communication and play, and into personal and collective journeys. PP has been ongoing for thirteen years, and is offered twice each year to engage and celebrate a focused experience of dance/movement and music as a form of ritual and community. With a different theme for each Performance Project, we engage in a process of collaborative creation and play to investigate themes based on PERSONAL stories, ENVIRONMENTAL concerns, BODY IMAGE, or DREAMS, and aim to create a sacred space where landscapes and archetypal images can emerge.
