To Develop Designs
Gweneth West and costume designers Laura Crow,
Marianne Custer, and Susan Tsu will share their
process of developing design ideas for costumes
at the Toronto 2005 Conference & Stage Expo.
the conference session, Developing the
Costume Idea offered by the Costume Design & Technology
Commission, participants will follow development
from initial inspiration to sketches of their
own explorations of A Midsummer Night's
Dream. The session will be held 4 to 5:30
p.m. on Thursday, March 17, 2005.
Bring a love of
the play and germinating ideas. Look for a
character driven set of images that are more emotional
than literal, that create a sense of the milieu
more than the actual costumes. Gather non-literal images, emotional responses to character...anything but the
Pencil, paper, and color markers will be provided.
Participants may wish to bring their own art supplies
to continue working in their preferred media.
Work will continue after the session with sketches
posted at Stage Expo. Time will be set aside for
designers to respond to their work in an informal
session in the days following, a time to be announced
at the initial session.
