Production Description

For Mother Courage & Her Daughters, we were interested in representing parts of many times and many places, crafting our own aesthetic instead of a specific point in history. Because there would be an Ensemble present onstage at all times, melting in and out of the action, I created a nebulous solider look for them, over which they added character-specific garments.

To represent the distressed, devised nature of the production, I rendered the costumes in a messy style to show silhouette and colour palette, while still leaving room for the design to develop in rehearsal.
