Fall 2018: Red Dress Productions

Red Dress Productions (RDP) creates interdisciplinary art, performance, and visual public artworks. Much of RDP’s work includes elements of social-engagement or interactivity that dilutes boundaries of artistic and social convention between subject and object, and audience and performer/artist. 

Anna Camilleri and Tristan R. Whiston co-founded Red Dress Productions in 2005, and have since acted as artistic co-directors. They have a combined 40+ years of experience as multidisciplinary artists, and have been recognized with distinctions from the LAMBDA Literary Foundation, the Association of Independent Publishers, the American Library of Congress (book works), and the Premios Ondas and the New York Festivals (international radio broadcasting).
