Made to Measure - by Alana Valentine

Provided by:

Event runs from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM


Bride-to-be Ashleigh commissions Monica, a couture designer, to make the wedding dress of her dreams. She is reassured by Monica’s promises that the process will celebrate Ashleigh and fill her with confidence, but Ashleigh’s outward assurance masks internal conflict and doubt. As the wedding approaches, both client and stylist are forced to face the complicated relationship they have with each other, body shape and social prejudice. Drawing on interviews with designers, brides and health-based scientists, Made to Measure shimmers with Alana Valentine’s hallmark authenticity, empathy, and humour. Both 11am performances are open to schools and the general public and include a post-show Q and A session. Teacher resource kits are also available. To discuss making a school booking, please contact their education coordinator, Emma, on the email provided. Made to Measure is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
