Dressing Shakespeare : Clothing Designed by Jenny Tiramani
This exhibition was conceived as part of the Society of British Theatre Designers’ Collaborators exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum. It has been mounted at Nottingham Trent University to celebrate the inauguration of theatre designer and dress historian Jenny Tiramani as Visiting Professor of Costume.
This compelling exhibition provides a window into the world of real Jacobean clothing. It includes three realised costumes designed by Jenny for the world-renowned Globe Theatre in London; original 17th century clothing artefacts and fascinating glimpses into the elaborate process of dressing the actors.
Dressing Shakespeare is a unique resource for students, teachers and anyone interested in historical clothing, textiles, art and performance. For information on related workshops and seminars, visit www.theatredesign.org.uk or telephone 0115 848 2832.
