Course contents

Costuming is an inherent part of theatre production. The purpose of this course is to provide trade and theory skills and to guide the students to individual creative treatments of their graphics proposals. Currently, and more and more frequently we encounter efforts to go beyond the borders of individual components of a production or into another type of art. Here, also, costuming is not only clothing the actor, creating their stage character but also becomes the objective, puppet, stage, musical instrument, film screen, etc. This alternative approach is supported and reinforced and refined through the trade.

This is a block course which adjusts to the main study schedule.

  1. Textile techniques, technology and materials.
  2. The history of costumes and clothing, place in a context.
  3. Overlaps into other types of art.
