Victory Over the Sun: Theatrical Experiments

Lesson 3: Actors and Costumes

In the final lesson of the course we will analyze the correlation between characters and their costumes. Is costume more important than decoration? We’ll create dolls-actors for our avant-garde performance, invent costumes based on K. Malevich and L. Popova’s works and develop a system of movements focusing on choreographer N. Foregger and director V. Meyerhold’s creativity.
