From sketch to the costume.
‘ The making – of’, the production is apparent based on design drawings and pictures of the manufacturing process.
It is surprising then to see the result: fix and ready-made costumes from theater productions of recent, but also from older productions.
You can see works by famous national designers, as well as Arno Bremers (he designed costumes for the musicals A chorus line and Tommy;) Rien Bekkers (he worked for Operas such as Carmen and Fidelio) and Nicolaas Wijnberg (he designed the decorations and costumes for Operas by Ravel and plays by Shakespeare).
Highlight of the new exhibition is undoubtedly Joseph’s coloured dreamcoat from the musical: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
With a nod towards Floriade 2012 in the North of Limburg, the Floral Designers Ger Hoebers and Erwin Michielsen, the exhibition designers are trying with costumes from various shows of the own floral theatre with the flower in the title role.
To admire: wigs in Marie-Antoinette style.
These wigs are manufactured at the Training Institute of the make-up called FACES and are completely made out of hemp.
The students of the Academy from Genk complete the exhibition with their art.
