Encounters with the Past

Hampton Court Palace

Summer 2016

Directed by Jo McInnes

Written by Elizabeth Kutti

Costume's provided by Past Pleasures and Angels Costumiers.

I was responsible for dressing, laundry and the repairs and maintenance of these costumes. These costumes were worn with historically accurate fabrics, layers and fastening methods; meaning that dressing took longer and involved lacing and pinning in garments. 

The Encounters with the Past performances involved three different plays based around historical events that took place during the Tudor, Jacobean and Georgian eras at Hampton Court Palace. These plays were site specific and involved moving through rooms of the palace to follow the story. The performances involved actor musicians using historical instruments and music.
