"From Tutus to Trunks: The Shaping of Dance Design" with Connie Strayer

November 17, 2012 -

From the heavy and concealing costumes for dance in the time of Louis XIV to the more revealing, body-hugging costumes of today, design for dance has evolved alongside fashion, but has been molded by individuals in the field with vision and purpose, created by artists, choreographers, directors, and the dancers themselves. Political upheavals, literature and art movements, and technical advancements have made their mark on the visuals of dance. These major events, coupled with unique individuals, have brought us to a bounty of visual riches in dance today.
