An exploration of the various aspects of Costume Design for the stage. Studio projects will be designed to coincide with other theater and dance courses and currently scheduled productions. Critical discussion will explore the relationship between dramatic texts and design ideas.
Each class will be structured around practical projects to explore various visual ideas and practices. This “lab” work will emphasize the relationship and the translation between the verbal and the visual, and the development of your own creative process. This is not Project Runway. You do not need to know how to design clothes already. It is a course about thinking about theater as a visual medium.
