About The Event
The Costume Narrative Costuming 101
$20 - 90 minutes with Scarlet Delirium
Evergreen Spaces: BIRCH Studio
This class will focus on the “Costume Narrative.” This is a powerful tool and visual aid for the storyline of a routine, be it fully formed or loosely strung together. Learn how to make simple and impactful costume decisions, explore the who, what, where and why of your own Costume Narrative, and get comfortable with the evolutionary processes of your costumes.
Visual art is defined as “creating art primarily for visual perception,” and performance art “combines visual art with dramatic performance.” As performance artists, burlesque dancers, strippers and so on, we create a fantastical world on stage through movement, facial expression, mood and of course, costume! class will include examples and creative processes of Scarlet Delirium’s personal collection of handmade costumes. From extravagant builds to thrifty finds, and how they all tie together to aid in the story of a routine to the captive audience.
What to wear/bring: A Pen, Notebook, costumes you’ve been working on and your imaginations!
