Costume, In Development

In keeping with the stitched together theme I’ve created for Andronicus, here’s a sneak peek of one of Tamora’s Roman outfits- at a fitting. She’s partway through the process.20140628_210440

Andronicus in progress

In Development, Uncategorized

The design concept: Titus Andronicus is a world of horrible people doing horrible things to each other, in a civilization that is barely held together. Conceptually, I wanted to pull this production out of the real world of Ancient Rome, which this play isn’t really about, and create our own world, one made of scraps and ugliness. The first step in this process was to take ordinary modern pieces- worn and discarded, cut them up and reinvent them in a Frankenstein mode, with big exposed seams, raw cuts and mixed materials. Pictured here is step one, assembling the pieces before the dye, discharge and paint process.
