39 Steps

Category: Costume Design

Design Statement

The ‘39 Steps’ was performed in a small studio space with audience close on three sides. The performance style was 1930s, comic and colourful, very physical; fast and furious with minimum set and maximum emphasis on costume. I designed the costumes, including hair and make-up design because posture, gesture, hair and make-up all contribute to character and developing the costume narrative. My design concept integrated original period garments. The colour scheme was important; colour drawings helped illustrate mixed use of period knitwear and fabrics. I’ve tried to depict: tones, textures, weight, drape and the movement of fabrics. My costume drawings are part of my contribution to the creative process. Larger drawings help me to consider detail and the whole figure. Via drawings and on-going dialogue I share ideas; drawing throughout the production process, including quick sketches and notes responding to information from my fittings and rehearsal notes.
This was a small theatre company. As costume designer my responsibilities included: costume design, costume supervisor with some hiring, buying, fabric dying, costume making and alteration. The script gave me the opportunity to design for several fantastic characters including Mr. Memory and the Chinese Magician.
