My MFA graduate project is a performance of Shakespeare's Measure For Measure set in the vibrant and diverse city of Vienna in the 1910s, where a cultural and creative explosion of new ideas jostled with traditional bourgeois values and a sense of impending crisis. It is staged in a Spiegeltent, with the energetic and irreverent atmosphere of a cabaret. For a full description of the concept and synopsis please see the link above.
The process of designing costumes begins with research, and I am always excited and inspired by exploring the environment and time my characters lived in, in order to immerse myself in their world. With many years of experience behind me as a textile designer, my print and embroidery designs play an important part in helping to tell my character's stories.
