Sep 4, 2017
Opening Ceremony has decided to open up its New York Fashion Week presentation to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
According to the brand's Instagram, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon's upcoming Fall/Winter 2017 fashion presentation for the brand consists of a dance performance written and directed by Spike Jonze that explores the topic of relationships. Titled ‘Changers: A Dance Story,' it stars the actor and rapper Lakeith Stanfield and the actress Mia Wasikowska, and will take place on September 10.
Opening Ceremony has now announced that the production has been extended to incorporate four additional performances for the general public on September 11, 12, 14 and 15, with 100% of the profits from the $15 ticket sales being donated to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.
In an Instagram post announcing the news, Opening Ceremony refers to the show as a "genre-defying collab" that "tells a story of love & friendships through movement & dance in a 30 min performance."
‘Changers' is the latest of several collaborations between the brands co-founders Humberto and Lim and US director Jonze -- the trio have previously worked together on the brand's Fall/Winter 2015 collection, and on a play titled "100% Lost Cotton."
'Changers' will show at New York's La Mama Experimental Theater Club.
