Design Statement

I see costume design as a very complex discipline and I chose to represent it through a complex project whose production team I am a member of. The "3+1 LOVE" drama project consisted of three individual parts (Swan Lake,Eugene Onegin, Froth of the Daydream) and an addition (Woyzeck). The overarching theme is love. The original texts were only a starting point with which the whole team worked loosely and the proportions of text and stage design and movement changed throughout the process for the benefit of the visual form, often not said out loud with words. The interactions on stage often took on the meanings of the words and the visual took on the meaning of the said. This can be done thanks to the long term collaboration, the stage designer-costume designer tandem was equal to the directors´ tandem. Thus costumes are becoming an element in the production, carrying meaning in the context of the story and space.
