It’s a Creative Partnership
I love working on collaboration projects, especially when I’m invited into the process early on. The earlier the better i’m able to immerse myself in all the information and inspiration at hand for the work. My process usually starts by meeting with the Director or Choreographer so they can tell me more about their vision, inspiration and the number of bodies being dressed for a piece. Next I sit in on a few rehearsals to get a sense of the movement and characters being developed. During rehearsals I’m making a series of sketches with notes about movement, texture, environments and fabric. I go over these notes with the Director/ Choreographer to give them a sense of where I’m inspired to go but to also check in that its the right direction for them.
