  • Kym Longhi updated the Artwork Fashion News
    The evening gown as sarcophagus. I conceived and designed this piece to be worn as a costume in Penny Freeh's dance theater work, "Paper-Mache Cabaret." As glamorous facades these gowns conceal and restrict, but they are open in the back so that ultimately freedom is possible. These husks of women suggest death, the birth of new identity, and fashion fun.  As glamorous facades these gowns conceal and restrict, but they are open in the back so that ultimately freedom is possible.  The gowns a…

    Originally commissioned by Penny Freeh for her dance theatre piece "Papier-Mache cabaret." These husks of women suggest death, the birth of new identity, and fashion fun. As glamorous facades these gowns conceal and restrict, but they are open in the back so that ultimately freedom is possible. 
  • Kym Longhi updated the Artwork Coat Costume
    Costume Commissioned by Jennifer Ilse for dance performance.  What are we given to survive the extremes of navigation that we encounter in our adventure to adulthood?  Part arctic explorer, part baby blanket and spider web...this is a coat for the journey.
  • A disappearing act - defying self-imposed judgement or even definition, immersing oneself in the work and emerging, changed and liberated. "If I let go of what I think I am, can I fly?"  
  • Kym Longhi updated the Artwork Eternally Yours
    Inspired by Tony Brown and Kari Margolis in their roles as the vampire couple Desmodus and Diphylla, these beaded figures swoon in a perpetual dance of mutual consumption.   
  • Kym Longhi updated the Artwork Fear of Heights
    This piece is one of a sculptural necklace series, created through improvisational beadweaving. The figures, worn around the neck, are suspended high above the ground at a perilous height. The piece is about the struggle to maintain equilibrium while taking a risk, it's about a cycle of falling and grace.  
  • Kym Longhi updated the Artwork Into Balance
    A celebration of points of stillness in a busy life, the joy of risk, and the beauty of the human figure in movement.

  • Kym Longhi updated the Artwork Herocycle
    A multidisciplinary theater production crashing the life and exploits of daredevil Evel Knievel into Joseph Campbell’s seminal work, “The Hero with A Thousand Faces”.  The production integrated theater, aerial arts, video and live music to create an epic journey through Joseph Campbell’s “herocycle” as a framework for examining Evel Knievel’s life.  Presented in the Old Arizona Studios over 9 performances in June of 2013.
