On Sunday, November 24, textile artist Lisa Simpson presents Fashion Orchestra – a musical sewing performance, in the project space Errant Bodies, on Kollwitzstraße 97, between 5 and 9 pm. During the afternoon, the public can bring their clothes for upcycling, giving new life to old garments. In the evening Lisa joins fellow musicians* and performers in a spontaneous exploration of textiles, music, rhythm and sound. The sewing machine becomes percussion instrument, and garments are constructed live, to the beat of the music. The collaborative performance stitches together improvised music and improvisational clothing.
