Flights of Fancy (BDA_UK02)

     
Our costumes have emerged from an individual, personal and cultural perspective on the Birds. For us, it was not necessarily about designing a set of costumes for the play, but using it as a starting point for exploring the ideas in it or suggested by it. As a result, there was great diversity in the costumes created by the group, ranging from ideas of entrapment, corruption and punishment through to more fantastical pieces and the quest for Utopia. With a limited budget for construction, emphasis was on overall effect rather than the finished technique. We were encouraged to use alternative materials and innovative techniques in order to stay within our budget.
