|At work in the Costume Shop|
Sarah, the costume designer, had various ways to wear the costumes and there is even the possibility that she could switch costumes between characters as we journey on this devising path. This idea that there are very few limits we have put on this play is a bit frightening and yet exciting. For me this will be a wonderful learning opportunity. I like limits. I like knowing what I am doing. Being creative in an environment of limitless possibilities is challenging for me. In an environment like this trial and error is a beautiful thing.
Already this week I am seeing how being open to trying something and then trying something else until you find the right thing is the only option in an environment like this. While in the costume shop with Sarah I was helping her put together one of the costumes. She would try different pieces together until it all just worked but she wasn't afraid to use pieces in an unconventional way. This idea of freeing ourselves from conventional limits is what we all are going to have to constantly strive for on this trip. We will figure it all out eventually but for now we will all have to be open-minded. This could be a struggle for some – it definitely will be for me. The only thing that can hold us back from devising a memorable piece will be a fear of the unknown.
