In addition to ready-to-wear collections, NOT creates site-specific and custom performance experiences by collaborating with musicians and dancers pushing the boundaries of interdisciplinary performance. Recent projects include working with Shen Wei Dance Arts and Danielle Russo Performance Project, producing a Butoh performance at Paris concept space The Community, and custom performance-wear for solo violinist Leila Josefowicz and percussionist Mike Truesdell.
