Eliza Rasheed & Aamera Siddiqui present Cloth – A Reading of a Work in Progress. How much is too much? How little is too little? And who gets to decide? From the burka ban in France to dress codes in our own communities, from bloomers to pantsuits and the ever changing fashion trends; when it comes to women’s clothing it seems like everyone has an opinion. Cloth is a new work that explores women’s relationship to cloth, covering and choice, and the avalanche of factors influencing that choice.
A post-show discussion will follow each performance.
Aamera Siddiqui and Eliza Rasheed are a fiscal year 2016 recipient of a Cultural Community Partnership grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
