Event Description

Madame Magar’s Fashion Fete

Celebrate the finale of Madame Magar’s Workshop with a fashion performance and party! Witness the culmination of Madame Magar’s creative workshop installation featuring the Mill Collection of work garments including, frocks, aprons and hats – inspired by Lewis Hine’s photographs of children textile mill workers. This unique “fashion show” features members of the Power Company as models and original music compositions using found sounds, along with other surprise elements, performed by Charleston-based composer and artist Nick Jenkins.

Jenkins’ musical composition of train sounds, tap dance and sewing machines come together in a great celebration of both the Mill Collection and Madame Magar. A live performance with keyboards and digital soundscapes will be performed with a video collage backdrop of trains and dance, capturing the essence of trance.
