Costumes from Cirque Du Soleil
For my Circus Between Worlds performance I'm thinking about possible options for costumes, and have been researching examples. Cirque Du Soleil are masters at creating striking, sculptural and Surrealist costumes. Here are a few that particularly caught my eye.
"Veteran designer Eiko Ishioka is the mastermind behind Varekai’s costumes. Using a unique combination of moleskin (Lycra), along with flexible titanium rods and fire-resistant materials, Ishioka transforms the human body to allow for extreme acrobatic techniques."
