Folie/Culture presented its 2001-2002 collection of ready-to-wear restraining garments. Seventeen Québécois designers were invited to design straitjackets, and to present them at a performance evening which mimicked a fashion show. David Michaud and Steeve Lebrasseur from Studio d’Avatar were on site to encourage and support the different actions accompanied by the simultaneous creation of sound environments.
