It’s another Wondrous Wednesday; our blog dedicated to Wondrous Stories! Conceived and directed by our Artistic Director Kevin Finnan, this extraordinary large-scale production will be the opening show of the Birmingham 2022 Festival.
The costumes for the show will be designed by our collaborator Sophie Donaldson with support from Senior Lecturer Louise Chapman and her BA Hons Costume Design and Practice (final year cohort) students from Birmingham City University. The city of Birmingham has been a huge inspiration for the costumes in the design so far. The students have been researching into the iconic architecture, as well as tapping into their own experiences of Birmingham. This will be the inspiration that they will be using to design the costumes.
Last week, we were joined by Sophie and the students from Birmingham City University to start the design and creating process for the costumes in Wondrous Stories. Watch the video below to hear how they are working with Kevin to create costumes that tell the story of the characters in the show and what you can expect from the costumes!
