Sharing stories of women in North Dakota
Camilla Morrison explores connection between women and costume tonight at Burtness Theatre
Can costumes tell stories?
Costume designer Camilla Morrison believes they can.
Join her for “Of the Earth: Stories of Women in North Dakota,” which will blend poetry and avant-garde costumes at 6 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, June 29, at UND’s Burtness Theatre. Parking and admission are free.
Morrison, teaching assistant professor at UND Theatre Arts, will share themes from interviews with women from across North Dakota as well as showcase wearable art which explores the themes of womanhood.
She will share stories and experiences of aging, motherhood, and the joy and sadness of being a woman.
Morrison uses painting and dyeing techniques that blend visual art and costume design, and is especially interested in the connection between people and clothes, as well as character and costume.
The project is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the North Dakota Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
