Melissa explained that her inspiration behind the story of the collection Fall/Winter 16/17 came from an astrophysicist, Jocelyn Bell Burnell, who discover ‘pulsar’ frequency in 1967.
Art movie and art photography were made in the building was built in 1710 as the city hall of Batavia.
Melissa collaborates with Davit Fitrik, a choreographer and a professional dancer to brought together ‘Tari Pulsar’ in this collection.
Due to the fact that this field was new to Melissa, she started to learning contemporary dance regularly at the beginning of 2016.
Once the artist has found inspiration, as a team, we continue to develop the concept to production. How will they look like? What is the story behind their character? How will she interact with other characters? What acts will she perform? We discuss it all during brainstorming sessions.
A costume is a crucial part of the character’s visual look and makes a major difference on the impression she will give.
Makeup complements one character’s and completes the visual look. Specific character traits can be expressed through makeup too.
Our team understands what Melissa needs to make this process easy and runs smoothly. All things are well prepared, it is not from professionals but our team can make the necessary things become possible and be the perfect result.
A gasp from the crowd, energy use, making us not feel tired and proud of the results achieved.
