 Students will develop techniques that allow them to conceptualize, communicate and realize costumes successfully.  Design will be approached as an integration of all the performative tools – text, visuals, sound, etc – with particular focus on the scenographic role of the performer.  Students will design for movement and character; investigate the scenographic potential of costume in text and performance; research and design a portfolio of costumes for a classic play or opera.  Students who have completed Theater 174A, Introduction to Costume Design, will be given preference for enrollment but those new to costume design are welcome space permitting.
