30th September

Today we looked at 'planes of movement' the table, the wheel and the door. I thought it was really interesting to think that certain personalities and characters move in particular ways - and you can break it down. Kellin and I found that, when walking we were both quite relaxed and swung our arms and legs. We liked the idea that this movement could make a costume continue the relaxed movement that we started.

We wanted to make a circular out fit with flexible outer ring so that you could create many different shapes. In the end there were more defined bends that we had anticipated because we could only find short lengths of nylon to use as the outer circular rim. However it was an exercise in adapting and creatively overcoming limits. We found that the result had more movement than perhaps our first idea and made really interesting shapes.
