MASTER IN COSTUME DESIGN FOR THEATRE, CINE AND OPERA
Start date: Noviembre 2013 | Duration: 500 hours | Language: Spanish
6 th edition
The master in Costume Design for Theatre, Cinema and Opera wants to create a way to reflection and analysis of costumes in their relationship with dramaturgy. From the mythical narrative core to the ritual, that is, from text to drama, through religious ceremonies and desacralized, secular and virtual shows of our days, the dramatization process will be arisen, a process in which costumes play a fundamental role.
This Master wants to train professionals capable of understanding costumes as an element of visual expression of the proper language of theatre, opera, cinema and audiovisual shows. The main function of this type of designer is to dress up a character from dramaturgy and the analysis of its psychological behavior, and also taking into account dramatic and actor’s features. Students will be able to compose a character from observing themselves and the others to obtain coherence in their creation. The eventual objective is for them to create their own language, both original and contemporary, overcoming time and trends and assuming the fashion influences to transmit visual force to the costume, to foster the message of the plays.
Didactics plan is focused on the project as the fundamental axis for costume designers, supported by a good background in history of clothing and a research on historical references up to contemporary clothing and its pattern making. With these contents, students are expected to:
• Acquire the basic aspects of material fusion concept, movement, actor and scene.
• Master the fashion sketch design process, selection of textile and materials, new materials and technologies for clothing design, supervision of the fulfillment and clothing rehearsals on actors and on stage.
• Face the relationship with the other different and concurrent disciplines in the show, scenography and lighting.
This master is aimed to graduates in fashion design, fine arts, graduates in different design disciplines and to professionals from different areas of this field.
Students who take this course can develop their professional career in the following areas:
• Producers from entertainment and advertising sectors.
• Theatres with their own production or alternative venues.
