Costume Project(ion) with Xristina Penna

This workshop explored how technology changes the performance process by investigating the use of costume and video projection. Looking at problems and limitations of working with video, the workshop helped participants think about how costume is transformed when using film.

This event was for emerging theatre practitioners/designers. Real interest was demonstrated through the application process.

Price: £12
