Theater Portfolio IV

By tarkheki
I recently applied for a Theater Design Position at a local Theater Company that deals specifically with Aboriginal contents. While they are not looking to hire now, I decided to try my luck anyhow. :)

The Portfolio is called “Evolution” and deals with the transformation of the Oral traditions into Contemporary Theater- passing via the written word [script] and Visual Arts (Costume, Set, Etc).

Seen here, the Fourth set of concepts- staging.

I dedicated two pages of the portfolio to staging- simple backdrops of various ethnic themes that would bring out the cultural concepts of said cultures. I worked primarily with symbols and design styles- with dominant color schemes. :heart:

Oh wow. I love the colors you used. And there are such distinctions between them all (well, duh, obviously), but they're made really well. Amazing. :)

Thank you!
Distinctions have to be far more noticeable in a theater environment- every little thing conveys the atmospheric moment, and it has to be clear and concise! :heart:

Thank you! I really appreciate the kind words... I'm hoping to contact them after the holiday season and maybe get a positive verdict.... ;)

how do you come up with this stuff X3 it's awesome!
tarkheki's avatar
Lots and LOTS of inspiration... usually obtained with the learning of new ethnicity or any little tidbit of knowledge. Somehow, I translate information into colors and images. Depending on the variables, a parabolic function can be so monochromatic, or like a kaleidoscope! :)

wow that's an awesome way to come up with stuff X3

Your overall work is complete and well-detailed. I love your costumes in particular.
I wish you good luck for your application ;p

Thank you so much!
However, in aboriginal communities, you never call and outfit a "costume". it's considered an insult. :heart:

Oh!! I'm deeply sorry. Since you said it was for a theatre, it was just a misunderstanding, I didn't mean it ^.^;
tarkheki's avatar
Yah, no prob, wasn't angry, just clearing that up. :) :heart:
