Another invaluable experience was my role in the production of costumes for the multi-media educational project, Stations of the Sun.
This culminated in twelve public performances. I sourced specific items from dance groups and hired some pieces from the National Theatre; nonetheless I made the majority of costumes myself. These were a modern interpretation on traditional Morris Dancing costumes. I worked extremely closely with the musicians involved to ensure that the garments fitted well and did not restrict movement. This project gave me an insight into the industry and the practical skills required whilst working alongside all members of a production crew. It was particularly valuable as an opportunity to make costumes that are practically viable and comfortable on stage for physical performance.
