Shakespeare’s Tribes at the V&A, 2nd – 4th May

Costumes by Clare McGarrigle from London College of Fashion, MA Costume Design. Primary colour costumes for Macbeth’s three witches.

Introduction to the event below from the V&A website:

“Join costume design students from the London College of Fashion, Central St Martins, Edinburgh College of Art and Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, who have created Shakespeare Tribes and claimed ‘territories’ in the museum.

The tribes are defined by specific dress, behaviour and performance codes.

Follow this living exhibition from space to space to see how the tribes interact with each other and their environment. They will question the politics of public space, and explore fantasy and theatricality as expressions of political positions and acts.

Shakespeare Tribes is part of the SharedSpace project in cooperation with the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space. With the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union.”
