The environmentally-conscious textile designer Sudo Reiko sees textiles as a form of communication: ever-present, embedded in the walls of shops and hotels, or crafted into every accessory and piece of clothing. Sudo experiments with unconventional mediums such as washi, a traditional Japanese paper, and recycles damaged fabrics to reduce material waste. Her designs have revived the use of older Japanese techniques and textile machines, preserving the industry's most classical traditions. The exhibition will delve into her work at NUNO, a Tokyo-based design firm, giving us a comprehensive look into Sudo's drawings, sketches, and design process.

On the Soviet stage
In this original play, we follow the true story of Lyudmila Pavlichenko, the deadly Soviet sniper who, during World War II, reached a record of 309 confirmed kills. Pushed to her physical and emotional limits first in a demanding Red Army training program and then in a war that was dominated by men, the play explores how Pavlichenko earned the nickname of "Lady Death."
