un/dress is a metaphorical performance by Italian/Japanese choreographer and performer Masako Matsushita that comes from the fusion of body and object with in a moving painting. It focuses on the exploration of changes and cloth migration, keeping the natural way of dressing and undressing the piece becomes an inquiry into the role of feminine clothing and body in modern society.
The body is strongly present and at the same time absent, is the central point of unification, isthmus which links, hourglass of time, amplifies horizons indicating a crossover.
The presence of Prussian blue fabric strips brings precision, regularity, direction and dimension, and at the same time establishes behaviours in the achievement of a purpose.
