“Embodying Pasolini,” a performance by Olivier Saillard and Tilda Swinton at the Mattatoio, Rome

Purple is pleased to present “Embodying Pasolini” by Olivier Saillard and Tilda Swinton as a part of Romaison’s project dedicated to costume design and fashion.

Embodying Pasolini was born out of the approximately forty costumes designed by Danilo Donati for Pier Paolo Pasolini’s films. Swinton tried on the costumes, testing their consistency and memory by giving them a body and suggesting the contrast between power and action.
