NOTRE-DAME DE PARIS
A conceputal costume design inspired by Victor Hugo´s novel and the French musical by R.Cocciante & L.Plamondon from 1998, visualised in two short movies.
The 1st part completed in 2016 illustrates the whole setting. The 2nd part, completed a year later, brings the costumes to full maturity and tells the end.
The main character, Esmeralda, is divided into 3 roles.
Each role is played by one and the same person.
The whole range of this project includes a new concept for costumes, stage design, storyboard and dramaturgy, all in written form, based on the original spectacle.
