National Theatre of Cyprus, March 1997


Mme. Pernelle


Three of the costume drawings for 'Tartuffe' at the National Theatre of Cyprus in Nicosia (March 1997). Because of pressure of time only these few were given a colour treatment. All the designs evolved from watching, drawing and photographing the actors in rehearsal. This made it possible to present final designs which were fair likenesses of the actors in their costume which seemed to enhance the company's morale, create some amusement as well as confidence in me. The actors said that they felt they knew what they were getting and appreciated being able to negotiate with me during rehearsals. The production photos may reveal whether or not their confidence was justified.
