SEW WASTED || dada fashion

In the great performance art traditions of Dada and Bauhaus, Los Outsiders once again stir the creative pot with the full-artistic-community-encompassing performance event, “Sew Wasted.” Much like Walter Gropius’ Bauhaus sought to bring together all artistic mediums under one umbrella, Los Outsiders continue their efforts to stitch together the artistic population of Austin. Whereas the preposterousness of Dada performance was intended as a reaction to the incomprehensible nature of the First World War, “Sew Wasted” aims to act as a mirror on the absurd issues of our modern world and all its complexities.

Five teams of creatives (visual artists, theater artists, and dancers/choreographers) collaborated on fauxfashion-as-wearable-art to create performance art presentations that pounded our runway in over-the-top revelry. Each team created two sculpture and performance fashion looks. Sit front row center, bring a fan, a camera flash, and a fashionista attitude! Experience the Austin arts like never before as you take a large swig of absurdity and get “Sew Wasted.”
