Performance: Madaleine Trigg

Madaleine is an experimental performance artist, whose work resides in an exploration of the body and a fascination with design elements. As her practice has evolved, Madaleine has become increasingly interested in sculptural/architectural costume, specifically exploring how different materials interact and condition the performers’ movements and investigating its potential as a fundamental and poetic language of performance.

Madaleine regularly collaborates with the costume designer, Francisca Rios. Francisca has recently been awarded a Master of Arts in Costume Design for Performance from The London College of Fashion, where she presented her Final Performance Project at Sadler's Wells Lilian Baylis Studio. Francisca acts as a freelance designer and has worked with some important members of the industry, such as the renowned choreographer, Marie Gabrielle Rotie.

Madaleine and Francisca's latest collaboration, Sutre, premiered at the Spill Festival’s National Platform on 18th April 2009. Sutre will also feature in Vitoria´s International Theatre Festival (Spain) on the 3rd November 2009, in a new programme which celebrates contemporary Performance Art.
