A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Costume Design
2008 The Banff Centre; Kelly Robinson Dir.
The mysterious forest near Athens, as imagined by Shakespeare, is brought to shimmering beauty by the music of Benjamin Britten.

Set Design notes. Inspired by the whimsical illustrations of Arthur Rackham, the costume designs play on the rich ambience between twilight and the earthy humour of Shakespeare’s Rustics. The choice of cloth and palette mold the delight of nature with fantasy, to create a world of transformative dreams.
