Je m’appelle Ismaël – Lazare
In order to confirm my two-year degree in costume making, I created an entire silhouette for a show. During an internship at the National Theatre of Strasbourg, I realised an architectural costume for a secondary character, drawn by Léa Perron, for the show: Je m’appelle Ismaël, (My name is Ismael) directed by Lazare in March 2019.

The costume has been cut off the production, so I finished the structure and the theatre offered me to work on another production: Les disparitions où tandis que le monde brûle.
The contract was to create a spheric costume that will contain the actress’s body. Therefore, this structure was elaborated like a crinoline. Beyond this technical challenge was an artistic one, because the outside texture of the sphere was to invent.
