Code f.a.d., where f.a.d. is an acronym for film, art, and dance, is headed by Artistic Director Autumn Belk whose piece “Fashion Briefs” is a collection of short dance works inspired by the lives and work of famous fashion designers, from the humorous antics of Louis Vuitton to the murderous and vengeful Gucci family. “Fashion Briefs” features an original soundscore by G. Todd Buker. It premiered at the Houston Fringe Festival in May 2010.
This project is supported, in part, by the Alabama State Council on the Arts and National Endowment for the Arts.
