A Mid-Summer Nights Dream
The Curve Theatre
I undertook a two-week work experience placement with the Wardrobe Department of the Curve Theatre, helping them prepare for their community summer show: ‘A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream’.
I worked on several aspects of the performance, however I mainly worked on interpreting the dress for the fairy Queen Titania. I was given the freedom to adapt certain parts of the core design to incorporate my own ideas and was trusted to get on with most tasks with a large amount of autonomy. I also assisted in the making of other character costumes and props such as helmets and shields and I was invited to assist as a dresser during the shows themselves.
