In mid-November 2001, Folie/Culture held a straitjacket fashion show at Complexe Méduse’s Salle Multi. The pieces were designed and created by 17 Quebec artists, performers, and fashion designers and evoked the theme of forcible restraint, particularly the confining gaze, the confinement of the gaze, and the idea of isolation.

Avatar’s David Michaud and Steeve Lebrasseur contributed to the show with a simulcast sound environment. A bowed plastic cup or a modified electric double bass joined other unusual and computerized objects were used to feed the artists’ creativity and surprise the audience.
