Issey Miyake and Twelve Black Women, 1976
Both of us were interested in the creative expression of black people throughout the world. We felt that the theatrical spirit of [Miyake’s] clothes could be beautifully expressed through black dance and movement.
We selected twelve black women, both famous and unknown models. Under Minoru Terada’s direction, these models became fantastic dancers and actresses who blended beautifully to create marvellous theatre. - Eiko on Eiko
