27. Folk Costume As Performance
The role of Folk Costume will be explored in defining it as and creating boundaries within artistic performance. The Milanese historical parade Palio di Legano is explored in an investigation seeking to define historical re-enactments as artistic performance.
While, through the lens of Brazilian popular theatre, the boundaries of folk costume in performance will be examined alongside the contemporary idea of costume design as a scenic signifier.
