BABYLONIA IN NAFPLIO 2007 Group 2 (BAA_GR0202)
the characters of the play “Babylonia”, we examined various forms of
traditional dress. In most of them, apart from fabric, shape and colour
play a vital role. The way the body is transformed and reshaped
attracted our attention and we asked ourselves: could we consider the
body as some kind of tower built up piece by piece, aiming to the sky?
To this direction we are trying to re-built and dress the body, using
“spare parts” from various traditional costumes. This mix and match
that would definitely be considered as a costume Babel when seen in
parts, will eventually lead to creating two complete figures - a male
and a female one – where, diversity combined, will shape a new entity.
