GSD – Performance Art Costumes

While thinking about the performance I will do for our site project we talked about a costume and the idea of the work being a whole rounded aesthetic.

The idea of a costume for me is that not only is it adding to the performance but it can also give you more confidence and not allow yourself pull back from your performance. This is one of the tricks I learnt during years of theatre performance.

From looking at the doppelganger book I have decided to go for a non humanistic type of costume or something representing a clown. The idea of being something so strange you cant quite place it or a play on the event we are doing.
