  • BACCHANALIA - COSTUME DESIGN

    Costume designs & character concepts developed for a short dance piece based on ritualistic dance and the dance plague of 1518. The costuming worked around the portrayal of two personas, ‘The Young Woman’ and ‘The Bodies’. The focus of intent was to set apart ‘The Bodies’ from ‘The Young Woman’ as more abstracted forms, indicative of emotional or psychological representations of figures as opposed to literal individuals. Key areas of reference include organic growth & decay, disfigurement of form and dress associated with ritualistic practices.
