costume, design, Pericles, Drama, Shakespeare


This paper examines the costume designs, character analysis, and the process of design collaboration involved in the production of Pericles, Prince of Tyre done in the spring of 2009 at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The designer, Heather Lee Crocker-Aulenback, chose to create a series of cultures influenced by both the text and familiar cultural groups found in our own world, to represent the lands visited by the hero of the play and to create a dynamic and artistic visual landscape for the audience.
