Musicals, a brief summary of my ideas.
In this new project i am looking at characters from musicals and crossing them with the costunes and makeup that they use to portray their character. i will look closely at the aspects of portraying characters without using any external elements. after this is will look at how the external elements of costume and makeup build up a character and show its characteristics. this could be done like in ‘cats’ where the element of makeup and costume is taken to the extreme as the idea is to completely take the audiences perception of a human acting away and to persuade them that there are cats dancing infront of them. Other musicals just portray characters through what they wear and how they act, more than painting them with makeup to give a completely different character and form, such as ‘we will rock you’
