Overview

This workshop is part of The Creative Gesture dance program. From Pablo Picasso for the Ballets Russes to choreographer Damien Jalet’s collaboration with Marina Abramovic, more and more visual artists, architects, fashion designers, and product designers are working with dance-based concepts and performers. 

This program will introduce designers of all disciplines to the fundamentals of designing for dance. Participants will utilize their own artistic ideas and concepts to transform the presentation of dance to future audiences and dancemakers.

What does the program offer?

The program will be led by the Andrea Brussa Master Artists, Canadian designer Liz Vandal and theatre and fashion designer from Norway, Stine Sjøgren. Participants will work with summer dance faculty, including choreographers, costume and wardrobe designers, and technical specialists of the craft of costume fabrication to realize and prototype their design ideas on dancers.

Using the ongoing creation process as an inspiration, participants will work on thematically designed tasks, as well as the chance to interact with the dancers of Alberta Ballet. Participants will conceptualize, design, and fit a costume on a dancer. Participants will see how a costume moves on a dancer and how their work can affect a dancer’s experience. 

Who should apply?

Post-graduate students interested in expanding their understanding and developing skills in costume and wardrobe design for dance are encouraged to apply. The majority of applicants will have significant experience or formal training in visual art, fashion design, or theatre.
