Design Statement

Learned Ladies/ Les Femmes Savantes is a verse play by Moliere in five acts. It is a satire on academic prevention, female education and preciousness. I created stylized period costumes for this production, although extreme, were still human rather than fully caricatured. The design process began with a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC with the scenic designer. We found a 17th century sideboard with inlaid semi-precious stones and trimmed in gold as inspiration for the scenery. I used the colors of the sideboard as my backdrop. scenery created strong verticals and horizontals allowing me to create a bold palette. The director was trilled with these choices. He staged the production with strong linear blocking. The over all design was cohesive and tight giving richness to the comedy.
