Tighter Than Tights GIF with Ortonandon

Yesterday I attended with my daughter a workshop by the fantastic Orton sisters Katie, Sophie and Anna, who make up 'Ortonandon'. The workshop was the closing event at an exhibition called 'Dance like nobody’s watching or Dance like you’re not dancing' at the Gallery/ studio space Rhubaba in Edinburgh. 
It is amazing how a simple garment such as tights can be so transformative not only in the way you look, but how you move and think.
In sharing tights to create a new entity, the collaboration, choreography and symbiosis of ideas is crucial. As you can see from the photographs it is 'serious' fun and the possibilities this simple idea has, for performance, costume and dance are infinite.
