Design Statement

I am the costume designer for "The Government Inspector" which is a musical.

Adapted from the satirical masterpiece by celebrated Russian dramatist Nikolai Gogol, The Goverment Inspector has charmed generation of playgoers with its acute characterisation, arresting plotline and sarcastic tone, resulting in a penetrating probe on the corrupted and rotten bureaucratic system and the ugly human nature that fuels it. This time, with a 25-people live orchestra, Gogol's eternal classic will be revaitalised in an absurd imaginary city and performed as a full-length musical.

Director tried to create the story in a strange and unknown city, but not far way from us. All main characters are the officers of the city. I chose a stylize blue color for the main color theme for this unknown city, in other to create like a uniform silhouette. Design based on character's personality, tell the story and personality through pattern, cutting, wig and exaggerate body part.
