This July, the
Studio Seven textile artists, working with choreographer
Marie-Louise Flexen, will bring two stunning Gloucestershire gardens to life with CUT 2 ON FOLD, a sumptuous site-specific textiles-led dance performance. Quenington Old Rectory and Hidcote Manor Garden will be transformed by Studio Seven’s innovative blend of textiles, installation, and contemporary dance.

CUT 2 ON FOLD is a multi-faceted textile-led project running throughout 2009, including an interactive installation, a contemporary dance piece, and a wide-ranging educational programme. The project explores the process of making a garment - the journey from flat pattern to calico toile to finished piece, and finally to the movement created by the wearer. Garments created during a 3-week interactive installation at the Stroud International Textile Festival become the costumes for the dance piece; the dancers in turn inhabit the world of the installation - responding to the themes of making and the inspiring garden settings. For CUT 2 ON FOLD, Studio Seven are once again collaborating with choreographer Marie-Louise Flexen, composers Steve Skinley and Rick Morton (Familiars), and professional dancers from across the region.

Following our highly successful Make Do & Mend in 2008 and Textiles in Performance in 2007, we are returning to the Stroud International Textile Festival with CUT 2 ON FOLD, a new interactive textile installation. This multi-faceted textile-led project invites visitors into a world of textiles, in which they are invited to play a part

CUT 2 ON FOLD explores the journey from flat pattern, through calico toile towards the finished garment and beyond. Enter a mysterious workshop in which stand a silent group of tailor’s dummies clothed in the bare bones of an outfit, each one a world within a world. Visitors will be invited to embellish and add to the installation, which will slowly come to life.
