Series #1 — The Sweater
The "Neoplastic Sweater" is a knitted costume realized for “Dark Night of the Body”, a dance theater work by Stefanie Adkock.
This project is part of a series of works called Neoplastic Knitting.
Adcock and a cast of four dancers, “Dark Night of the Body”
is a live performance incorporating dance, spoken word and movement. Drawing
from personal experiences, Adcock utilizes winter as a metaphor for dealing
with terminal illness and its resulting isolation as one person attempts
to explore the symbolic collision between life and art.
