In my final year of university I fulfilled the role of an
assistant costume supervisor for the production of 'People of
the Abyss'. This parkour piece re-imagined Victorian London
and the challenges faced by working class people. My
responsibilities on this project was to source period correct
costume which wouldn't break in the movement, sourcing
materials for the made costumes and breaking down all costumes
to make them suit the designers vision.
