Since 1967 The Prague Quadrennial (PQ) has been instrumental in creating connections and collaborations between practitioners and educators from across the world. Scenofest is the new, interactive part of the exhibition, aimed at both students and practitioners. Having been awarded the UAL Teaching and Professional Practice Fellowship in 2004/5, with a mandate to create an international network of costume related practitioners and academics, with the aim to raise awareness of the contribution that costume makes to performance, I positioned myself within the Scenofest steering group, and led the ‘Costume Project’, becoming instrumental in developing the themes, ideas and structuring of Scenofest 2007 in a way that costume became central to it.
I was responsible for leading and coordinating events related to costume, including six three day workshops and five presentations of current research, led by key international practitioners, including Lucy Orta and Suzanne Raschig.
As part of this, I presented my own research, analyzing the relationship between drawing, movement and creative collaborative practice, and referring to the CLIP CETL funded ‘Moving/Drawing’ workshop, which I devised, about drawing, the body, movement and mediated performance, bringing together performer Lilo Baur and fine artist Charlotte Hodes.
