Why are the lives of western women valued more than the lives of us?” (The True Cost, Documentary, 2015)
This question, asked by a Bangladeshi garment worker, stopped us in our Black Friday tracks. It led us to explore the hidden stories of Garment Workers in fast fashion and opened up a Pandora’s box of questions that could not be shut.
We thought, screamed, danced, acted and created. And now, in this work in progress, we look at the human cost of fashion.
Dirty Laundry is a dancer-actor collaboration exploring how mostly female garment workers pay the true price for quick, on-demand fashion. Our work in progress is stitched together through dance and theatre.
