Moria’s costuming is heralded as unique and innovative.
For the stage, the process of becoming a character, entering another realm, and understanding the rules and function of this world can be intimidating.
In COSTUME CAFÉ, you will learn the rules and then how to break them while maintaining the spirit of Tribal Fusion belly dance.
You will learn what works and what doesn’t for the stage; costuming’s short and long cuts, how to turn the usual into the extra-ordinary, and how to construct a masterpiece that is easy to take on and off.
From initial inspiration to sewing the first stitch, selecting the fabric to fitting-the-mood, dancers will learn how and where to find the resources, as well as the techniques and ideas necessary to begin, continue, or rediscover your inner costume designer.
COSTUME CAFÉ shows the dancer practical ways to create a dramatic costume for a solo or an ensemble piece.
Please bring a pen and notebook and feel encouraged to bring your own costuming conundrums for question-and-answer.
