Entity Contemporary Dance’s newest evening length work, TRANSPARENT/SEE, examines the misconnection between garment maker and consumer within the fast fashion industry. Responding to the simple question, “Who made this?,” choreographers Will Johnston and Marissa Osato seek to illuminate the hands behind the products we wear. Exploring themes of overconsumption, sacrifice, personalization, and community, TRANSPARENT/SEE questions what is lost and found in our commodity-driven culture.
