<<I believe that we embody heritage, that the past still maintains a part in our daily movement, appearing unconsciously.
If “the costume is the first dance”, as François Chaignaud said, the costume can be this transmission link, able to dance in dialogue with history, small or big, creating the potentiality of dancing in the past. The costume has this faculty of being able to dissolve the body of the dancer, to change it, to modify it. A new reality exists and a fictional body emerges.>> (Darius Dolatyari-Dolatdoust when asked: <<How is your costume agentive?>>)
