If you hit the snooze button on TV fitness guru Jillian Michaels’ “powerful” Maximize Your Life tour, fear not: The “madmen and women” of the Aesthetic of Waste also have a “life-changing” offering up their sleeves—and they probably won’t bark in your face, encourage you to shed pounds or shame you for drinking margaritas. But as the hard-to-categorize collective (Seth Larson, Abigail Entsminger, Judson Rose and Noah Voelker) has proven with productions like the award-winning We Stole This and the AtticRep collab White, anything’s possible.

Other dresses on display include the Duchess of Romantic Destiny, the Duchess of Youthful Enthusiasm and the Duchess of Insatiable Curiosity, from the 1983 Court of Never Neverland representing the Princess and the Pea, the tale of Peter and the Wolf and Alice in Wonderland.
