Working alongside scenography director Iuliana Vîlsan, we designed the leather harnesses that completed the costumes for one of Notarra Theatre’s plays: Disputa (A matter of Dispute, by French dramatist Pierre de Marivaux). The play was selected to be part of the Romanian National Theatre Festival’s repertoire in 2018.

The collection was showcased as part of visual artist Ioana Maria Sisea’s Bleeding Gold project, at Galateca.
