Fashion Students Take on Costume Design

Dressing Cleopatra on a budget isn’t easy but fashion students have been testing their skills to create authentic Shakespeare costumes for just £20.

Second year fashion students worked alongside their drama piers to design and create costumes for characters in five separate performances held at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre this December.

Each budding fashion designer was given a play and a character brief, ranging from a comedic old man to a modern prince, before crafting their outfits. They had to estimate the time period based on the play and devise an outfit that incorporated personality and style – all for just £20.

The iconic plays included Antony and Cleopatra, Timon of Athen, Othello, Henry IV part 1 and Henry IV part 2.

Mollie Hawkesford’s character was Sempronious, an extravagant member of the House of Lords from the play, Timon of Athen.

 “We knew it needed to be formal as most of the play is set at a dinner party so I created trousers and a waistcoat from scratch and then made sleeves which I added to a bought shirt. I designed the print for the clothing and printed it using the university’s Mimaki printers.”    – Mollie Hawkesford

Diversity in the arts: a Lincolnshire case study

Earlier this year, the University’s School of Fine & Performing Arts launched Lincolnshire Diversity in the Arts, an Arts Council England funded research project exploring rural artistic diversity.

Led by Dr Arya Madhavan and Dr Sreenath Nair, the project has taken theatre as a way of examining the challenges of diversifying arts in rural counties like Lincolnshire, and identifying ways to overcome these challenges.

As part of the project, a survey has now been launched to collect the thoughts and opinions of as many people living in Lincolnshire as possible.

If you can, please spare five minutes to share your thoughts and complete the online survey. All answers will remain anonymous and will contribute to the development of a cultural diversity strategy for the county.

For more information, or to access the online survey, click here.

Women’s history charted in new documentary

The revolutionary history of women from militancy to sexual liberation and beyond was brought to life in a new BBC Four documentary thanks to the contribution of a Lincoln academic.

Women, Sex and Society: A Timewatch Guide draws on 30 years of TimeWatch footage and 70 years of BBC archive films to plot the revolutionary changes that took place, comparing how films from different periods presented the issues of their time.

Historian and broadcaster Helen Castor was joined by Professor Krista Cowman, Professor of History at the University of Lincoln, UK, and an expert in women’s history and politics.

The programme examined the fundamental shifts that have taken place in the UK, from the suffragette struggle for the female vote in the early part of 20th century, through the social and sexual rebellion of the 1960s and beyond.

Professor Cowman described the ongoing transformation in the rights and roles of women, as the show explored the changes driven by successive waves of feminism and how these redefined the wants and needs of women.

Women, Sex and Society: A Timewatch Guide first aired on BBC Four on Tuesday 15th November 2016 and is available on the BBC iPlayer at the following link: http://bbc.in/2eEvn1S
