Today is a sewing day. I´ve designed a pirate-costume for Pippi Longstocking´s father in the show starring in November. First up is the shirt, simply because I had the fabric I needed already in my stack. Made with fine, white linen, and in a very big size. Piecing it together, trying to make the inside […]
“Perpleks” won! We won! We won the Hedda-prize for Best Show!!! (The Hedda prize is the Norwegian theatre-prize, equivalent to the American Tony.) Perpleks was staged at Rogaland Teater this winter, and I was fortunate enough to be part of the wonderful creative team as the costume-designer. Glenn Andre Kaada, the director, with the Hedda-prize. […]
The second wearable ocean dress for the gallion-girl dancer. Not finished, just pieced together. It will be adapted to the dancer when she puts it on.
A costume that matches the sea. The dress of a galloon-figure. A moveable costume for a very pregnant dancer. Using only natural fibers, so that I can dye them later in the same thunder-ocean-blue. The top is made in raw silk jersey, so it will stretch and adapt to her changing size. The arms reach […]
“Kong Kødd” or “Herding the King´s Rabbits” premiered at the StoryTellers Festival in Oslo on Saturday. Three excellent story tellers had joined forces in this version of the traditional fairytale. Kristine Haugland, Øystein Vestre and Sara Birgitte Øfsti wanted to challenge themselves, by working with a voice-instrumentalist, a choreographer and adding costumes and set. And […]
Or maybe I should call it a pipe-top? Only three days to the opening show of “Kong Kødd”(/”Herding the King´s Rabbits”). This is part of one of the costumes. Made to resemble part of the set, which is all made up of plastic pipes and tubes. Tomorrow I´m off to Oslo for the final preparations.
PERPLEKS is the theatre-show I designed costumes for at Rogaland Theatre this fall. And today the show has been nominated to the Hedda Prize. One in four shows of all the shows in all of Norway! We´ve even been nominated for two prizes. One is for best director: Glenn Andre Kaada (below, click on the […]
I´m working on the costumes for a show in Oslo, opening in a few weeks. It´s a NOT-old-fashioned version of a traditional Norwegian fairy-tale, originally titled “Sheparding the King´s rabbits”. The costumes will be slightly inspired by the props, which are also the set, namely a lot of old, used plastic pipes: Without revealing to […]
(photo: Stig Håvard Dirdal) Perpleks opened Friday night. It´s a funny-weird little show that is impossible to put in just one category. Written by Marius von Mayenburg and translated by Thomas Bjørnager Directed by Glenn André Kaada Set-design and composer: Arne Nøst Costume-design: Janne Robberstad Lighting-design: Torill Lund Sævland Actors: “Ingrid”: Ingrid Rusten “Ragnhild”: Ragnhild Arnestad Mønness […]
One of the costumes in Perplex is for a viking valkyrie. Her armored top is being made in super-soft metal-layered leather. The bra-piece has a freely drawn on pattern, which is sewn down by hand. The inner layer is from an old 60s bra-inlay, so the shape of the breasts are now very “optimistic” Still […]« Previous Entries
