Dressing the Imagination: From Page to Stage
THEA 284
Fall 2024
Section: 01  

What does it mean to create a character in an imaginary world? How do your favorite fictional characters go from imagination and concept to the costume you see on the screen or the stage? And how does the collaborative process impact a costume designer's vision, as well as the costume maker's execution? In this course we will answer all of these questions. Throughout the semester we will look at a variety of scenes and characters from plays and musicals. Students will then apply research and design to create half-scale costumes. Working in a collaborative design environment students will have the opportunity to explore their ideas in a safe space, gain confidence in leadership, oral communication, presentation, self-management, and costume creation.
