Brides

To celebrate the life of Professor Emeritus Beverly Blossom, her piece Brides was reconstructed by alumna Mei-Kuang Chen for November Dance: Attachment in 2015. This version included both male and female brides to commemorate the 2015 Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage.

In the Next Room

To accurately capture the setting of a play, costume designers, set designers, and properties masters extensively research appropriate clothing styles, materials, furniture, and accessories. Some pieces are sourced and purchased, some are created in production shops inside Krannert Center, and others are located among the thousands of items in storage.
