THEA 004C. Costume Design for Queer and Transgender Actors & Characters

In the studio component of the course, we will look at the history of queer and transgender fashion.  We will discuss two plays and design costumes from this perspective, while simultaneously learning about the Costume Designer's responsibilities as an artist, researcher and collaborator. The lab component of this course will introduce students to the relationship between the Designer and the Costume Shop, providing ample projects for learning about textiles, equipment and sewing techniques. No previous experience with theater, sewing or design required.
