Labyrinth

LABYRINTH

2012

Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way
here to the Castle, beyond the Goblin City, to take back the child that you have stolen.
For my will as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great…you have no power over me!

Project for my degree thesis “Labyrinth”, contrary to the original version, famous for the presence of puppets, in my versione the characters are all humans.
So I choose the soft lines of the Art Noveau style, between the XIX and XX century. Heavy dark coloured velvet for the women’s ballgown are in contrast with the brightness of Sarah’s costume.
Fire Spirits dance in hypnotizing acrobacies, wrapped in ethreal tunics, inspired by Mucha’s paintings.
Soldiers, ruled by Jareth, the Goblin King, are in plated winged armores and wear animal skins, as the Hussar traditional uniforms.
