Went to Greenwich today as it was such beautiful weather, but also took a few pictures of the Greenwich tunnel for my personal project. I am designing and making for a site specific performance and have decided to set it in the tunnel as it is an interesting space with amazing acoustics.
3 of us were allocated to work on the costumes for the 'Nimbus Nymphs' who first appear on stage dancing inside giant inflatable bubbles made by 3 technical effects students. They were designed by Nina Jovanovic, Gigi Dey and Jennie Poundall. The bubbles pop onstage and the dancers emerge and transform into the nimbus nymphs. Therefore the costumes and wigs had to each have an element of transformation. We created concertina origami shapes which we hand pleated, that were twisted onto the body using magnets, and could be slowly pulled off by the dancers. They then used these origami tube shapes for the next part of the choreography. I made the costume for Nimbus Nymph 3, danced by Rachael Fraser, along with Bea Sweet who was the make up artist and wig maker.
