The Sleeprunner delicately sways between the worlds of waking and dreaming, muddling the line between reality and fantasy---I wanted the costumes to reflect that journey as well. Each costume has a base of creamy shades and textures like clean canvases. Just as we drift off to sleep and our unraveling subconscious starts to fade into our mind’s eyes, soft comforting ephemeral hues seep into the costumes, punctuated with a menacing undercurrent of darkness.
I designed, pattern drafted, hand dyed, & constructed every costume piece and styled the dancers' hair.
