Contemporary Dance
About This Project

Alps, Switzerland, Muzeum Susch, embodied nature, ecofeminism. Maria Zimpel – dancer and choreographer, once again invited my studio to design an outfit for a new kind of choreography, one entirely carried out in the outdoors, in the majesty of the Alps. We have developed a dancewear concept based on minimalism, natural materials and the principle of reuse. I also took into account the relationship of the human female body with the natural environment… in sensual, functional and ideological terms. Based on this idea, we have developed a modular set of two dance costumes, the Leenee Suit and Leenee Feelm Suit. We wanted the best possible implementation of the principles of sustainable development. The Leenee Suit is made of over 96% natural yarn with technical properties. The top of the Leenee Feelm Suit is made from the reused material of another garment. 93% of the bottom of this outfit is made of natural yarn with technical properties.
Contemporary dance dancewear requires the selection of specialized materials and thoughtful cuts that allow
for freedom of movement and expression. Thanks to my studio’s experience in the sports industry and
previous projects for contemporary dance, we have developed costumes that ensure comfort while dancing,
align with the motif of the choreography and complement the dancer’s body in motion and the surrounding
