During my time at university I took the chance to use my designer and sewing skills to produce the costumes for a student play. The play I created costumes for was Dante’s divine comedy.
For the costumes that the actors wore for the scenes in hell I got the inspiration from the grey unisex uniforms used in Mao’s communist China during the big leap forward (during this time I was traveling a lot in China).
I love trying new things! To work with the actors and the producer was a very fun and exiting experience. The theatre might not have been exactly the right place for me but I learned a lot about working with artists and translate a vision into a design concept. It is interesting to see how things I’ve done in the past starts to become a part of the puzzle that shows what I do and who I am.
I wonder what skills I will discover in my fellow Hypers during our last months together. Every week we have sharing sessions and workshops where we show each other things is a new opportunity to find out. Don’t miss out!
