Project: Design and costume concept
This immersive production of Shakespeare's last play is set in Wilton's Musical Hall and the surrounding bars. My designs were built on the central theme of constructing a fantasy for manipulative purposes; imagination vs. artifice. The costumes then examined this through the lens of gender theory, with Ariel and his acolytes becoming drag queens; and questioning Miranda's development among exclusively male influences.
William Shakespeare - Writer
Dr. Jess Hartley - Director
