Design Statement

The Human Project, was a collaborative piece of physical theatre devised between the performers and creative team. The piece aimed ‘splice together body parts, personalities, languages and music in a sensory explosion to design the perfect human. The design evolved throughout the intense 4 week development period.
The final design allowed a centre of focus for the four performers to complete their intense, meticulous choreography with costumes that referenced elements of the human body. The spine-like seam down the back of the performers was created using shibori technique, and the vein-like textures were pin tucked and hand painted and neoprene fabric. These ‘second skin’ costumes juxtaposed the clean, harsh light of a simple white square that framed the piece. Warm light was hit directly onto the square which allowed the remaining black space to disappear and create an eerie loss of perception.
