Fashion Machine is at the Royal BC Museum March 28 and 29.

Theatre SKAM’s fashion machine lets kids take over

Art project focuses on design and artistic expression

Theatre SKAM was inspired by their work with Toronto’s internationally sought after Mammalian Diving Reflex to create Fashion Machine. In this piece, children get the chance to take select attendees’ outfits and remake them into new works of fashion art.

On March 28 and 29 at 7pm Theatre SKAM’s Fashion Machine is going to have a final local performance at the Royal BC Museum before setting off for an international tour to Austin, TX and Bristol, UK!

It’s the last chance for audiences in Victoria to take part in this unconventional piece of performance art, where kids from local elementary schools redesign select audience members’ outfits.

For tickets and more information, visit or call 250-386-7526.

Get there early to grab an “I’m In” sticker and have the chance to get your clothes remade!

Admission $10 or $30 for families (up to 2 adults + 3 youths)
