Finale Lineup

The play is a satirical piece about Austria, mocking the stereotypical elements of the 'Austrian nature'. Main inspiration was the comical aspect. Overall I tried to create a tacky Austrian, kitsch feeling, combined with all the folkloric chic. The final aim was it to show of a big variety of cultures and social classes, capturing the essence of each individual character through a playful and fascinating take on their costumes. - Costumes for 11 characters
