BODIES AND TEXTURES

Costume, Movement and Performance Workshop 2017

MA Costume Design for Performance at LCF

J'ai commencé ma recherche scénique dans le cadre de mon master à Rose Bruford College. En janvier 2017, j'ai participé à un échange avec des élèves en master de design costume à LCF (Londres). Ce stage, à l'initiative de la chercheuse en costumes Donatella Barbieri, m'a propulsée dans l'univers du costume en mouvement, en voici quelque photos.

 

My artistic research started within the frame of my masters (2016-2017) in Rose Bruford College. In January 2017, I participated in a workshop with students in MA costume design at LCF (London). Created by Donatella Barbieri, costume researcher, this opportunity became the soil of my research mixing costume and movement. Here are some pictures.

Touching, Feeling : textures and the actor's body

La suite de ma recherche s'est focalisée de manière pratique sur les sensations de l'acteur face au toucher de différentes matières, la boue, l'eau, la papier, la peinture, tout peut faire partie intégrante d'un costume. La matière devient une partie du corps, mais aussi une partie du décor. Pour ces différentes recherches, j'ai eu la chance de travailler avec beaucoup d'artistes.

The following months, I have focused my research on the emotions an actor could receive from a material, given that materials such as mud, water, paper, paint etc could be a part of a costume. The textures associated with all the different materials become a part of the actor, but also a part of the scenery. For this project, I have had the chance to work with a lot of artists.

Materiality as a starting point to move

Ces recherches visuelles ont donné lieu à la construction de worskshops durant lesquels les participants peuvent explorer seuls ou à plusieurs les effets de l'application d'un matériau sur leur peau. C'est une création en direct d'une seconde peau, d'un costume pour le spectateur.

These visual experiments brought the creation of workshops that allow the performer to explore materials on their skin, by themselves or within a group. It is a living costume conception for the spectator.

The workshops took place with the students of the MA Physical Theatre of Accademia dell' Arte with : Erika, Nike, Aubrey, Elyse, Caroline, Justine, and Marketa who had worked with Continuo Theatre. All the experiments (location, material, participants) were made possible by the kindness of the Czech company Continuo Theatre.
