HOW FAR WILL YOU HOBBLE TO REACH A CLIMAX?
Catwalk Performance Fashion NZ presents
MILK & MUCUS 2
Directed by Annie Tatton


The twisted perspective and methods of the beauty machine forces perfection teetering on
the brink of ridiculousness in this show at TAPAC theatre from February 28th to March 2nd
2013.


This show challenges Catwalk practices creating aesthetics, ergonomics and prosthetics
merging into a choreography far from the so called 'beautiful walk'. Milk bottles line the
runway, models are covered in mucus. The climactic event of the Catwalk includes
photographers, lights, sound and hype suggestive of the ultimate 'cumshot'. The bliss of
milk and mucus is subverted.


A show which asks how far will we 'hobble' for fashion? What happens when fashion on the
Catwalk becomes lame? In what way does the Catwalk presuppose the bodies it extends,
and what becomes of the fashion system in the face of corporeal disablement?


Milk & Mucus was performed for the first time at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012 with a
4 star review from Broadway Baby (www.broadwaybaby.com)  This genre spanning piece has
'striking visual images' along with 'something a little sour' in the air.
